RICS seeks to influence governments, international organisations and key stakeholder organisations around the world with the aim of developing and embedding truly international standards and creating a vibrant and sustainable land, property and construction sector.

RICS uses member expertise to demonstrate how RICS professionalism, technical knowledge and standards can practically deliver to the public advantage.

As a professional body governed by a Royal Charter, all those within RICS undertaking influencing activity, from press to parliamentary affairs, from public relations to policy development, act in the public interest.


Our global policy and influencing is closely linked to our research agenda. The RICS report into public private partnerships and the delivery of infrastructure has been promoted to governments and key organisations in the USA, India, Australia and the UK.  RICS research into land markets led to a major global influencing project focusing on ownership of land and how clear registration, information gathering and education on land rights can be put in place.

RICS continues to produce research and policy on these and many more issues in order to influence governments and stakeholders across the world. To contribute to our global policy and influencing work email policy@rics.org.
