LPI Inspection Program

Embrace the Standard.

The benchmark for independent third-party lightning protection system inspection and certification.

Not the oldest. Not the largest.

LPI-IP is a step forward. Beginning in 2010, LPI-IP is the industry’s most comprehensive inspection program combined with intentional customer service that respects your time and sense of urgency.

LPI-IP is the logical response to what a group of vested industry professionals identified as the counterproductive status quo. LPI-IP addresses the heretofore lack of a viable certification alternative.

Inspection and certification to comply with national standards has been reimagined throughout the entire process. From the first call or email, promptly answered, to the inspection and certification solutions and guidance we deliver, the complete experience is optimized for your benefit.
We continue to evolve.

LPI-IP is the Lightning Protection Institute’s (LPI) Inspection Program.

Inspection. Certification. Interpretation. Design Consulting & Review.

  • I cannot speak highly enough of the team at LPI-IP. They are knowledgeable, professional, and responsive. Before the Lightning Protection Institute Inspection Program, the options for project certification for lightning protection and grounding systems were limited. LPI-IP has created a streamlined process with clear communication from start to finish. Customer-focused support and a can-do attitude sets LPI-IP apart from their competitors, and we greatly appreciate the effort that they put forth on each of our projects.

  • What a great experience it has been using the Lightning Protection Inspection Program. Since the launch of the program in 2011, it has been the only inspection program we have used. LPI-IP offers our customers the most comprehensive inspection process available to them in the marketplace. The program allows us to assure our customers they are getting a certified system that will be inspected by a consistent, reputable third-party agency when we are finished with our work.

  • We’ve been using LPI-IP exclusively for the last three years. Even though there is more required, it is a very easy process. With the engineering review, pictures and inspection, it goes far beyond the competition. It’s also nice to support an organization that supports the industry.
