Ethics and professional conduct

Rules of Conduct set out the standards of professional conduct and practice expected of RICS members and firms.

The Rules are based on core ethical values, which are key to meeting these high standards of behaviour.

Concerns about the behaviour of RICS members and firms are investigated by RICS Regulation, which has the authority to impose sanctions on members and firms for breaches of the Rules of Conduct.

The new Rules of Conduct are available to download and came into effect from 2 February 2022.
