Overseen by and reporting to the SRB, Regulation continues to work to maintain public trust and confidence in the profession. This is achieved by adhering to our strategic direction of professionalism in the public interest and fulfilment of our Royal Charter.

We support the profession, underpin consumer and wider public confidence, and uphold professional standards through regulatory activities and assurance programmes. This includes:

  • supporting members with annual continuing professional development (CPD) compliance
  • supporting regulated firms with registration and renewals
  • supporting Valuer Registration scheme members with registration and renewals
  • supporting client money protection schemes and designated professional body scheme firms 
  • member-support visits and regulatory-review visits to scheme members
  • analysing regulatory risks and data, creating a regulatory risk outlook
  • regulatory compliance workshops and webinars
  • professional indemnity insurance support and assigned risk pool applications
  • receipt of concerns about RICS members and regulated firms
  • investigation of concerns and 
  • referral and prosecuting of disciplinary cases before single decision makers and disciplinary panels of the independently led Regulatory Tribunal.
