RICS is delighted to invite you to a CPD event run on ICMS (International Construction Measurement Standard): A seminal Quantity Surveying standard which will be held on the 6 November 2019

Whilst the seminal ICMS has achieved global adoption since the launch in July 2017, ICMS 2 (published September 2019) now extends the standards into life cycle costs. This will enable consistent and comparable international benchmarking of both construction capital and life cycle costs – a first for the profession. The seminar will overview the development of the ICMS project, provide detail on the requirements of ICMS 2 and show how the forthcoming RICS Global Professional Statement in Cost Prediction will implement ICMS for RICS members. In addition, it will cover how RICS will promote a global system for data collection and sharing based upon these new standards. Cost management and quantity surveying are increasingly global and the Middle East particularly reflects this international environment. – and all RICS professionals need to be aware on how to use and advise on these important standards.

Learning outcome:

  • Why the ICMS project came about and how it was undertaken;
  • How and when to apply ICMS in practice;
  • Benefits to professionals and end users;
  • How it links to new technologies and techniques;
  • How it maps to more granular measurement standards; and
  • How RICS standards will support ICMS .

All practising RICS members are required to record at least 20 hours of CPD (including a minimum of 10 hours of formal CPD) completed each year. It has come to our attention that certain RICS members in this region have declared as complete CPD events that they have booked but not attended.

We will also be carrying out extra checks on CPD records and, where dishonest recording is identified, the matter will be brought to the attention of the RICS regulation team and may result in RICS pursuing disciplinary action.
