Property Measurer Certification

Property Measurer Certification

RICS' Property Measurer Certification provides market confidence in the reporting of measurements to International Property Measurement Standards. RICS-qualified professionals and certified measurers have the skills and competence to deliver the transparency and consistency needed through all stages of the property lifecycle.

Why property measurement matters

TV property expert Phil Spencer explains the value of this guidance for all property surveyors, which aims to drive down inconsistent and inaccurate measurement practices.

Why become RICS certified?

Certification demonstrates your commitment to the highest standards of property measurement. The desire for International Property Measurement Standards has been established; RICS has the tools - through training, assessment and continuing professional development - to promote who is best placed to offer measurement services in compliance with the standards.

All RICS-qualified professionals (AssocRICS, MRICS and FRICS) are committed to the standard as part of their professional obligations and may offer measurement services alongside their other surveying services. If you want to gain this status exclusively for your measurement services then the certification is for you.
