The International Valuation Standards Council (IVSC) is a not-for-profit organisation that acts as the global standard setter for the valuation profession, serving the public interest.
The IVSC is unique in the role it plays as a valuation standard setter. It is not a valuation trade body. The IVSC is a leader in the mission to raise standards of international valuation practice and is overseen by an independent board of global leaders. Its core objectives are to:
- Develop high quality International Valuation Standards (IVS) which ensure consistency, transparency and confidence in valuations throughout the world, and;
- Encourage the adoption of IVS, along with valuation professionalism provided by Valuation Professional Organisations.
The IVSC facilitates collaboration and cooperation among its member organisations, who are valuation service providers, financial services businesses, regulators, international bodies and academic institutions. The IVSC consists of more than 100 member organisations from around the world and is supported by numerous sponsors who are leaders in the valuation field.
