RICS Rules of Conduct

The RICS Rules of Conduct provide a framework within which members and regulated firms offer and deliver their services. They are designed to represent a transparent system of conduct and regulation.

The RICS Rules of Conduct are short and principles based. The rules are mandatory for all RICS members, students and trainees, and all RICS regulated firms. They came into force on 4 June 2007, but have since been revised. The previous rules, issued in 2004, are provided here for information purposes only.
