If it comes to our attention that you are using "Certified Professional Inspector®," "CPI" or "C.P.I." in marketing yourself or your company, be alerted that your use of that designation is a direct infringement on InterNACHI's ownership, as it can cause confusion in the industry and dilutes InterNACHI's marks.
