Professional Portal

Professional portal

The new professional portal supplies our members with easy access to their RICS details and the ability to apply for Regulation.

Maintaining RICS regulated status delivers confidence for your business and your clients.

That is why we are constantly working to improve our approach to regulating the profession. One way we're doing this is by continuing to develop a better digital experience for you - introducing our new Professional Portal.

The Professional Portal will give you a more user-friendly, consistent, and secure service.

How do I use the portal?

How do I log on?

You will need to use your existing RICS email address and password to log on to the portal.

Trouble logging on?

Responsible Principal

The Rules for the Registration of Firms (effective from 1 April 2020), introduce the requirement for all RICS regulated firms to appoint a responsible principal.

A responsible principal will have primary responsibility for ensuring that RICS' professional, technical and ethical standards are applied, upheld and supported by an appropriate assurance framework within a regulated firm.

Firm Regulation: Delivering confidence in your firm

In a complex and rapidly changing marketplace, your clients seek confidence and security. Obtaining 'Regulated by RICS' status allows your firm to meet this need. It shows the world that your firm practises to globally recognised ethical and professional standards.

By registering your firm for 'Regulated by RICS' status you are making a commitment to work to RICS standards in your business, and to allow us to verify this commitment. 

Firm Sponsorship

Sponsorship codes

RICS has changed the way regulated firms can sponsor valuers for the Valuer Registration (VR) scheme. The firm's Contact Officer will need to purchase sponsorship codes through the portal.

The sponsorship code can then be given to the valuer. The valuer can insert the code in their account and will not need to pay.

Sponsoring a Non-Regulated organisation

Sponsoring Non-Regulated Organisations are organisations that pay fees and provide firm related regulatory information on behalf of their Registered Valuer employees but are not RICS Regulated.
