AIBS Accreditation Scheme

The AIBS Accreditation Scheme 1 July 2020 (the Scheme) establishes criteria that must be met by building practitioners, such as building surveyors and building certifiers, seeking accreditation in order to practice in a particular field.

Applicants seeking accreditation, re-accreditation, or an accreditation upgrade must demonstrate that they meet the accreditation criteria required by the Scheme.

The Scheme is subject to the AIBS Code of Professional Conduct, a copy of which can be downloaded below. It also establishes a Continuing Professional Development Program (CPD Program) for persons accredited under the Scheme.

The primary objectives of the AIBS Accreditation Scheme are to specify:

  • appropriate categories of accreditation;
  • minimum qualifications a person must hold to be accredited in a particular category of accreditation;
  • minimum levels of experience a person must have to be accredited in a particular category of accreditation;
  • processes and procedures for the administration of the Scheme;
  • a Code of Professional Conduct that each accredited person must adhere to; and
  • Continuing Professional Development (CPD) requirements for re-accreditation.

For more information, including applications for accreditation, re-accreditation, and accreditation upgrades please see our page on Applying For AIBS Accreditation.
