Red Book Global Standards

The latest edition of RICS Valuation – Global Standards ('Red Book Global Standards') is effective from 31st January 2022, the same date as the latest edition of IVS becomes effective.

RICS translates the Red Book into some languages such as French and German, and for those where a translation is not available, we have provided supporting documents in English. If you think a document or translation is missing from this page, please contact us at

A guide to key changes

The accompanying Red Book Global — Basis for conclusions explains the rationale behind updates in the latest version and highlights significant changes to ensure you can quickly identify what you must do differently to remain compliant. Specifically, it addresses the main refinements made as a consequence of the responses received to the public consultation. It has been produced purely to assist the reader and does not form part of the standards.
