About 6 years ago the ISO and BOCA supposely did surveys of all building departments in the USA inspection proceedures and rated the quality of inspections.
I understand, that if an area did "good" inspections, the insurance premiums could/were reduced for that particular area.
It might be worthwhile to contact the ISO Insurance Service Office http://www.iso.com/
and look through their site for further information.
If your area has high premium rates, possibly the town/city fathers may be interested in lowering the areas' premium rates, especially if the citizens are aware of the program.
I would not be suprised that some municipalities fathers' don't want this information spread around to the public.
