For property professionals in Australia there has been an increasing shift towards International Valuation Standards (IVS). International Financial Reporting Standards are now formulated in full consultation with representatives of the International Valuation Standards Council (IVSC) and there is now the practical requirement to be aware of IVS.

The IVSC is an independent, not-for-profit organisation that produces and implements universally accepted standards for the valuation of assets across the world in the public interest.

As part of our service to Members, current API members can access the International Valuation Standards via our online learning platform.
