RICS (Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors) is professional body that accredits professionals within the land, property and construction sectors worldwide.

We regulate and promote the profession; maintain the highest educational and professional standards; protect clients and consumers via a strict code of ethics; and provide impartial advice and guidance.

Who are our professionals?
We accredit 125,000 qualified and trainee professionals and any individual or firm registered with us is subject to our quality assurance.

Our professionals are required to keep up to date with current practice through a programme of lifelong learning. Qualified RICS professionals are recognised by these designatory letters:
FRICS (Fellow) | MRICS (Member) | AssocRICS (Associate)

What do we do?
With offices covering the major political and financial centres of the world, our market presence means we are ideally placed to influence policy and embed standards at a national level. We also work at a cross-governmental level, delivering a single, international standard that will support a safe and vibrant marketplace in land, real estate, construction and infrastructure, for the benefit of all.

We’re proud of our reputation and we guard it fiercely, so clients who work with our registered professionals can have confidence in the quality and ethics of the services they receive.

RICS plays an important role across the Oceania region.

Our Oceania operations are based in Sydney, with offices in other Australian states and also Auckland, New Zealand.

Its roles within the Oceania property sector are to maintain the highest standards of education and training, protect consumers through regulation of ethics and standards, and to advise organisations such as governments and regional boards.

RICS professionals work in land, construction and property. Land surveyors in Australia and New Zealand are compulsorily regulated by surveyor boards which form part of the Council of Reciprocating Surveyors Boards of Australia and New Zealand (CRSBANZ).
