Building Inspectors are the “umbrella name” for inspectors in National Government, Local Government and Private Sector, also known as Building Control Officers, plans examiners, works inspectors, home inspectors, assessors, compliance certifiers and surveyors.


To professionalise the building inspection industry

NABISA was Established in 2016 with the Following Aims:To become a professional body representing the interests of all South African building and home inspectors (including building control officers, plans examiners, works inspectors, assessors, compliance certifiers and surveyors).

  1. To regulate the activity of NABISA members by means of:
    1. Benchmarking relevant South African qualifications, training and experience required in order to become a NABISA member;
    2. Enforcing the NABISA Code of Conduct in order to ensure that South African consumers and property owners are protected by having their property assets inspected by professional, appropriately trained and ethical building inspectors.

NABISA has, in its short life, already attracted over 100  professional building inspectors as members.  Membership represents inspectors employed in government and municipal sectors as well the private sector (home inspection, construction and real estate industries).
