Red Book - what format?
The last fundamental rethink of the Red Book’s content and arrangement was undertaken at the beginning of this century. Back then the standards were only available in hard copy, in a large ring binder to allow for the periodic updates. There was clearly both a commercial and practical need to make sure all the professional procedures and supporting information relevant to every type of valuation that any RICS member may encounter was included in this single volume. Now the Book is published digitally there is the opportunity for much more flexibility to provide members with just the material that is relevant to their area of practice.
What do you think?
Should RICS make better use of the flexibility allowed by digital publishing so that members only need to download standards and guidance relevant to their practice area?
