An inspection is really a process of discovery. A qualified inspector should have a check list of items to look at, operate, test, and evaluate.

Inspectors who belong to a professional association such as the American Society of Home Inspectors (ASHI) are charged with complying with a Standards  of Practice.

The standards include all components that shall be inspected and the standards describe how each item  shall be observed and what shall be reported on each observed item, component, or condition.

In Georgia a written document (report) must be provided and the report shall cover all the items listed in Senate Bill 143-AN ACT.
