Conflicts of interest

The global professional statement on conflicts of interest provides clear rules for RICS members and regulated firms to identify and manage potential conflicts of interest. This provides confidence to clients and consumers that RICS members and regulated firms are operating to the highest ethical standards.

Following extensive industry consultation and feedback RICS developed this professionals statement to provide clarification on:

  • competing bidders
  • effective date/transition
  • conflicts arising during professional assignments
  • passing confidential information to insurers and legal advisors.

This standard is mandatory and applies to all RICS members and regulated firms, wherever they work and whichever sector they are in.
