The Association joins the International Ethics Standard Coalition to support market transparency.
ASSOVIB has joined the International Ethics Standard (IES) Coalition that will develop the first set of globally-recognised ethics standards for real-estate and related professional organisations. The IES Coalition, formed in 2014 at the United Nations, currently consists of nearly 65 member organisations with professionals working in a diverse range of countries. Among others, relevant international networks such as the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS), the International Real Estate Federation (FIABCI) and the International Valuation Standards Council are part of the Coalition. Coalition members will work together to align ethics principles through a new international standard. ASSOVIB joined this initiative as an ideal follow-up to its commitment to support best practices within the sector. The Association is convinced of the importance of having standards that aim to strengthen transparency, consistency and confidence in a global and increasingly interconnected market.
