FABI Logo Use
Use of the FABI Logos is restricted to master professional inspectors, registered professional inspectors, associate inspectors, and affiliate members. In addition, if a FABI MPI or RPI uses the FABI MPI or RPI logo and/or the standard FABI logo, any inspector employee or subcontractor used by them, for the purpose of performing the general building/home inspection MUST be a FABI MPI, RPI or associate inspector.
Each person must use the logo that coincides with their classification. An associate inspector found using either the FABI MPI, RPI, or affiliate logo may, at the discretion of the FABI Ethics and Standards of Practice Committee have their membership immediately terminated with no refund of monies paid. Affiliate members may only use the affiliate member logo.
