International Valuation Standards Committee

The IVSC - The International Valuation Standards Committee, is a Non-governmental Organisation (NGO) member of the UN, with membership that encompasses all the major national valuation standard-setters and professional associations from 41 different countries. IVSC publish the International Valuation Standards (IVS), now in its 8th edition.

IVSC headquarters are in London.

The IVSC was founded in 1981 as the International Asset Valuation Committee, a joint venture of the UK based RICS and the American Appraisal Institute. Its original purpose was the development of a set of common international real estate valuation standards for purposes of financial reporting, in conjunction with the development of International Accounting Standards (IAS, now known as IFRS) by the International Accounting Standards Committee (IASC, now known as IASB). Since then, the IVSC have broadened their scope to encompass the harmonisation of international real estate valuation practice in general, and have recently endeavoured even further with the intention of introducing standards for all types of asset classes (such as real estate, business and non-tangible assets).
