Non-member use: Stop! We mean it.
The International Association of Certified Home Inspectors -- InterNACHI® -- is a Colorado non-profit, tax-exempt corporation and owns the federally-issued registered certification mark for Certified Professional Inspector (CPI)®. The trademark is on the Principal Register. This is a certification mark used by inspectors who qualify for the designation. Those who have earned the designation often use the abbreviations "CPI" and "C.P.I.," and InterNACHI® also claims common-law trademark rights on "CPI" and "C.P.I." within the inspection industry.
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.
In that event, InterNACHI® demands that you immediately cease and desist from all use of "Certified Professional Inspector®," "CPI" or "C.P.I." Please remove those references from your website and any printed materials. If you comply with this demand within ten days, InterNACHI® will take no further action against you.
