Professional guidance

Black Book

The 'Black Book' is a suite of guidance notes that define good technical standards for quantity surveying and construction professionals. These standards are essential development tools for younger professionals working through their APC and useful guides to best practice for more experienced professionals.

The 'Black Book' standards provide certainty and consistency in quantity surveying processes. Clear standards against which professionals can perform their duties eliminate ambiguity and promote best practice. They also help to ensure clients receive objective advice, delivered in a professional manner and with a consistent approach, and allow the benchmarking of services when employing professionals.

Further standards are added to the 'Black Book' as times goes on; once completed, it will provide a legacy of technical information for RICS members.

The full RICS QS and Construction Standards (Black Book) is available to purchase in a box set from the RICS Shop
