We have compiled profiles of the valuation regulatory infrastructure in over 100 countries or territories from around the world. The objective is to provide an oversight of the extent of valuation regulation globally and where and how the International Valuation Standards (IVS) are used.
For each country or territory the following information has been collated:
Any laws or regulations restricting who may provide certain types of valuation and, if so, the types of valuation.
If there are legal restrictions, the body responsible for certifying or approving valuers.
If there are any legal or regulatory requirements to use the IVS.
Whether the government or a government approved body issues or endorses the issue of national valuation standards.
To search for information, select the country or territory from the drop down list below.
A list of valuation profession organisations (VPOs) within each country* is also provided together with answers to the following questions:
Are they an IVSC member?
Do members have to follow IVS?
Does the organisation issue its own standards?
If so, do these include, replace or extend IVS?
* Where a VPO has operations and members in a number of countries we have only listed them in their country of origin. We have classified any professional organisation that promotes its members as undertaking valuations of real property, business, intangible or financial assets as a VPO.
To compile these profiles we have used information from our own knowledge of the profession and public information available on the internet. We acknowledge that there will be inaccuracies and omissions and welcome any additions or corrections. Please contact us with any suggested updates to the current country information or details for any country not listed. If possible, please include links to, or citations of, documents from which the information can be verified.
CAUTION: The information in these profiles is for general guidance only and will change from time to time. You should not make any decison based on the information in the profiles without taking appropriate professional advice.
