Guidance notes provide advice to practitioners on all aspects of the profession. Where procedures are recommended for specific professional tasks, these documents are intended to embody 'best practice'.
All practitioners must inform themselves of new and updated guidance notes within a reasonable time of their promulgation 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 guidance notes published by RICS in deciding whether or not the surveyor acted with reasonable competence.
RICS members can freely download PDF versions of our guidance notes. Hard copies of all RICS professional guidance publications can be bought from the RICS Shop.
