There is an ICC Training and Education seminar available that is based on this publication. Contact us for more information about our educational offerings at icctraining@iccsafe.org or 888-ICC-SAFE (888-422-7233).

Report Writing for Code Inspectors covers: basic principles for organizing and writing reports, bullet style, punctuation, capitalization, sentence structure, English usage, and the specialized vocabulary you need for your reports. Sample reports are included, along with a pre-test, post-test, practice exercises, and complete answer key.

Report writing skills are essential to success in your code enforcement career. Your notices of violation, letters, and reports are public documents that may be read by supervisors, attorneys, judges, citizens, design professionals, contractors, and reporters. Quality inspection reports and notices of violation help ensure code compliance, impress superiors, and win respect from colleagues. They facilitate repairs, reinforce requirements for safe operations, and ensure unsafe practices are discontinued.
