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.
