Default Pennsylvania

What are the requirements in PA? I have searched and found different bits of information.
I am currently certified in Va. I have a client that wants me to go to PA to inspect and I don't know whether I can or not.

Any help would be great

In a nutshell: You have to be a member of InterNACHI and you have to carry E&O insurance.

Thanks Nick. I have all that. Do I need to send anyone any documentation for it? I have been on the phone most of the morning with PA, bouncing from one dept to the other. Gotta love it.

I am guessing that the licensing bill that I keep finding is not in effect yet?

This is the document with the latest date. I don't think this is in effect yet. I was looking for whatever department is handling it.

You found it. InterNACHI handles certification for Pennsylvania. There is no licensing, only regulation.

Yes it is. I helped author it years ago. PA has had home inspection regulation for many years.

We don't have a separate department at InterNACHI that handles it. I'm it.

If you have E&O and are a member of InterNACHI... you're good to go.

You can inspect, but you can't do a radon test or wdir unless you are licensed with the DEP and Department of Agriculture

Thanks! Just a normal inspection. Special request for me to do the inspection. I don't plan on making PA a part of my normal service area. lol
