APIV Scheme Renewal Application 2021-2026

The API is proud to announce that its Australian Property Institute Valuers Limited (APIV) Professional Standards Scheme renewal application for 2021-2026 has been considered by the Professional Standards Councils (PSC) and is now open for public consultation.

Subject to the approval of the PSC and after publication in the Victorian Government Gazette, the Scheme is anticipated to come into effect on 1 September 2021 and will expire on 31 August 2026.

The new APIV scheme has been enhanced to provide:

  • a more attractive ‘per valuation’ capping mechanism
  • expansion of the Low Risk Categories
  • inclusion of CPV (Plant and Machinery) category
  • expansion of the Scheme to cover a range of occupational activities undertaken by the occupational group (CPVs and RPVs)
