Massachusetts Federation of Building Officials
The Massachusetts Federation of Building Officials is an umbrella organization representing city and town Building Commissioners and Local Inspectors, commonly known as "building inspectors" throughout the Commonwealth. All are members of one or more of the regional professional associations. Working in close concert with the Massachusetts Department of Public Safety as well as with professional organizations throughout Massachusetts who represent design professionals, contractors, and other involved parties, the Federation is working to ensure the buildings where we live, work, worship, visit and recreate are safe for all.
It is the mission of the Federation to increase public awareness to the crucial role building officials play in ensuring public safety in the built environment, to advocate for responsible and reasonable building code development, and to be involved in the legislative process whenever our profession or the safety of the citizens in the commonwealth may be impacted.
