Approvals – Existing Inspectors

Re-Approval Process

From 1 January 2015, CICAIR implemented an annual monitoring and audit programme for Approved Inspectors. Renewal of the Notice of Approval is dependent on satisfactory completion of the annual monitoring and audit process.

Annual Monitoring

All Approved Inspectors are required to return a monitoring form to CICAIR on an annual basis.

Auditing

All Approved Inspectors will be audited by CICAIR at their premises at least once every five years at a time decided by CICAIR.

Fees
Please note that all fees are non-refundable.

Audit and Re-Approval Fee
£5,000 (plus VAT) payable prior to the five-yearly audit commencing. Any additional audit days that are required during the approval period will be charged at £2,000 (plus VAT) per audit day and will be payable prior to the audit taking place. 

Registration Fee
The registration fee is 0.9% of the Approved Inspector’s turnover and is calculated and payable annually over the five year approval period. The minimum registration fee is £1,000 (plus VAT) per annum. The registration fee is calculated on the most recently declared turnover figures provided as part of the annual monitoring process.


For example:

• An Approved Inspector with a turnover of £100,000 will pay a registration fee of £1,000 (plus VAT)
• An Approved Inspector with a turnover of £500,000 will pay a registration fee of £1,000 (plus VAT)
• An Approved Inspector with a turnover of £1,000,000 will pay a registration fee of £1,800 (plus VAT)
