    This new global edition of the RICS Valuation – Global Standards, or the RICS ‘Red Book’ as it has become widely known, reflects, among other things, the significant changes made and incorporated into the International Valuation Standards (IVS) 2017, as well as recent progress in the development of international standards for ethics and for measurement� Additionally it reflects the growing importance of successfully combining professional, technical and performance standards in order to deliver high quality valuation advice that meets the expectations and requirements of clients; of governments, regulatory bodies and other standard-setters; and of the public�

    Transparency, consistency and the avoidance of conflicts of interest have never been more important� Nor has technical expertise and practical ability ever been more in demand, including the experience and insight necessary to interpret and review market dynamics and trends, and – in relation to real estate assets – to recognise the growing relevance of sustainability factors as a market influence� RICS-qualified valuers are at the forefront of the valuation profession and the Red Book is their definitive implementation guide�

    2 As the requirements of governments and regulators progressively increase and the expectations of valuation users continue to grow, global standards for valuation have continued to evolve and now take three different but closely interrelated for
