The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) has updated its property measurement professional statement to reflect new practices in the residential sector.

The updated statement, RICS Property Measurement 2nd Edition, reportedly incorporates existing international property measurement standards, the International Property Measurement Standards (IPMS): Office Buildings, and IPMS: Residential Buildings.

RICS professionals will use the statement to deliver office and residential building measurements in line with globally evolving trends in the sector, the group noted in a statement, adding that use of the updated statement will become mandatory beginning 1 May, 2018.

According to RICS, more than 85 international professional bodies, through the International Property Measurement Standards Coalition, worked to develop IPMS.
