We divide our Middle East & Africa operations in to two regions: Middle East & North Africa (MENA) and Sub-Sahara Africa (SSA).



RICS has established a Market Advisory Panel and has national associations and local member groups in UAE, Qatar, Bahrain, Oman, Lebanon, and is working on the creation of a group in Saudi Arabia.

With offices in Dubai, UAE and Doha, Qatar, our staff promote the adoption of International and RICS standards and the recognition of our organization.

In addition to supporting our membership and managing the Assessment of Professional Competence (APC) process, our staff work closely with governments, banks and key stakeholders across the region to ensure adoption and regulation of appropriate standards in the respective markets.

We also support the built environment sector with extensive training products and services, advisory services and Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) training and appointments services via a quality assured MENA branch of the Presidents Panel of ADR specialists and Expert Witnesses.
