The regulations covers the topics of classification of surveyors, eligibility norms to be an insurance surveyor & loss assessor, duties / responsibilities of surveyor, code of conduct for surveyors & Framework and Practices relating to Survey and Loss Assessment. In addition there recommendation for obligations of insurers.


Some changes in regulations 2015, are about waiving of one training requirements to be eligible for the professional.  As per regulations 2015, a candidate has to complete 12 months practical training, pass exams, obtain IIISLA membership and then seek the license. The WG members are of the opinion that the requirement of practical training is to be waived in new regulations as it does not seem to serve the purpose that was envisaged.
