Under our bye-laws and regulations, our members must comply with RICS professional statements, in the interest of maintaining the highest professional standards.
All practitioners must inform themselves of new and updated professional statements in order to remain professionally competent. When an allegation of professional negligence is made against a surveyor, the court is likely to take into account any relevant professional statements published by RICS in deciding whether or not the surveyor acted with reasonable competence.
RICS members can freely download PDF versions of our professional statements. Some copies of RICS professional guidance publications are available as hard copies and can be bought from the RICS Shop.
