Sector standards

Sector standards apply to specific disciplines within the profession: building surveying, construction, dispute resolution, land, real estate, and valuation.

New RICS Rules of Conduct came into effect on 2 February 2022. Any references in our standards to RICS Rules of Conduct for Members, RICS Rules of Conduct for Firms or Global Ethical and Professional Principles should be read as referring to the new RICS Rules of Conduct.

With up to 70% of the world’s wealth bound up in land and real estate, our sector standards support stable, sustainable growth around the globe.
