NFPA 1031
Inspector Liability

e.g. After inspecting property and determining violations of the code, but fail to follow up to ensure that violations are corrected, the inspector may be held liable if a fire occurs. It is better to conduct fewer but more thorough inspections and to follow up on all violations than to perform many inspections in a haphazard, incomplete, or negligent manner.
