What is CAN/CSA A770-16 - Home Inspection
CSA A770 is a Canadian standard for home inspections developed by CSA Group (CSA). CSA is the biggest source of standards documents that is accredited by the Standards Council of Canada (SCC). This standard was created through the consensus of home inspectors, regulators, technical specialists, and consumer agencies. A770 defines the requirements for proper inspections, and encourages consistency, improves service quality, and builds consumer protection. By way of publishing this standard, the Government of Canada has deemed the A770 Standard to be the official national standard on home inspection.
