Under our bye-laws and regulations, our members must comply with RICS practice statements, in the interest of maintaining the highest professional standards. It should be noted that the category of practice statement has now been superseded by that of professional statement.
All practitioners must inform themselves of new and updated practice 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 practice statements published by RICS in deciding whether or not the surveyor acted with reasonable competence.
RICS members can freely download PDF versions of our practice statements. Some copies of RICS professional guidance publications can be bought from the RICS Shop.
