Just a quick reminder that the Second edition of the RICS measuring standards comes into force on May 1st. Applying the International Measuring Standards as a matter of professional guidance, the new standards apply to office and residential property; all other types of property remain subject to the Code of Measuring Practice, last promulgated in May 2015.
RICS property measurement, 2nd edition has an effective date of the 1 May 2018. The public consultation on RICS property measurement, 2nd edition was open between 1 May and 31 July 2017. Over 42 responses on single or multiple points were received from individuals, firms and other organisations containing some very constructive observations and suggestions. This document focuses not only on the more significant changes made, but also on several minor textual refinements put forward by commentators, which improve the overall clarity. RICS is very grateful to all those who responded.
