For Pennsylvania home inspectors and consumers
NSHI conforms with the Pennsylvania definition of a national home inspector association as (1) operated on a not-for-profit basis and not as a franchise; (2) has members in more than ten states; (3) requires 100 inspections to become a full member; (4) requires an accredited entrance examination; (5) requires that members comply with a code of conduct; and (6) requires continuing education for ongoing membership.

The Pennsylvania legislature does not certify or regulate compliance with PA Act 114, so it is each inspector's responsibility to comply with the law and become a full member of a national non-profit home inspectors association. NSHI provides members with a compliance document to present to clients or Realtors to verify self-compliance with PA Act 114. Consumer questions or concerns about any inspector's compliance with the Act should be directed to the Pennsylvania Bureau of Consumer Protection (717) 787-7109.
