Who We Are
The Independent National Inspection and Testing Association (INITA) is a professional trade association representing the interests of independent engineer surveyors (operating outside of the mainstream insurance company based engineering inspection industry).
Our members derive their income, solely from the provision of periodic thorough examination and testing of engineering plant and equipment for statutory compliance, as required in support of their client’s commercial insurance contracts.
The main inspection disciplines covered by INITA members are:
- Lifting Equipment - subject to LOLER Regulations
- Pressure Systems - subject to PSSR Regulations
- Local Exhaust Ventilation - subject to COSHH Regulations
INITA members also provide a range of engineering consultancy services to industry, insurance companies and solicitors, such as: expert witness, accident investigation resulting from plant failure, metallurgy, proof load testing, machinery condition reporting, and prior to purchase valuation and inspection.
