Rating Consultancy Code (RICS/IRRV/RSA 4th edition)


With the aim of improving consumer protection and maintaining professional standards, the code sets out the standards of practice that rating consultants must adopt in all cases where they are either seeking instructions, or are approached by a new or existing client, to provide advice in relation to non-domestic rating matters.

The code has been jointly adopted by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS), the Institute of Revenues, Rating and Valuation (IRRV) and the Rating Surveyors’ Association (RSA). It has mandatory application in relation to rating consultancy work.
