RICS Valuers Limited (RICSV) is a Professional Standards Scheme that is available to RICS Regulated Firms and RICS Registered Valuers.
RICSV is a legal instrument that can cap the occupational liability of a compliant Scheme participant in the event of a professional indemnity claim. It is statutorily compliant under the Professional Standards Act 1994 (NSW) as approved by the Professional Standards Councils (PSC) in Australia.
RICSV is effective in states and territories in Australia except for Tasmania. The statutory requirements for participants in the Scheme are in addition to those under RICS Valuer Registration (VR) and RICS Firm Regulation (FR).
Our compliance framework is based on the statutory requirements under RICSV, the Rules attached to VR and FR, and the Valuation – Global Standards (Red Book), one of the most rigorous sets of global standards for valuation. Collectively this framework makes up RICS’ valuation assurance regime in Australia.
For more information on eligibility, how to apply, the compliance requirements and the benefits over other Schemes, please read the RICSV, VR and FR FAQs and Infographics in the downloads section.
