The Entry and assessment process provides the gateway to membership, ensuring individuals have the right knowledge, skills, experience and behaviours at the point of entry and throughout their career. It is essential for all grades of membership that qualification standards and education are maintained and critical for ensuring trust and confidence in the profession. RICS’ dedicated project team continues to consult both internal and external stakeholders and work with both the Entry and Assessment Steering Group (EASG) and the Qualifications and Assessment Committee (QAC) to consider future changes.
