Valuations

IVSC Membership

SAICA is a member of the International Valuation Standards Council (IVSC), the global not-for-profit organisation responsible for setting International Valuation Standards (IVS) and developing the valuation profession worldwide. Although SAICA is a member of the IVSC, our individual members are not permitted to address themselves as members of the IVSC.

This membership provides SAICA with the opportunity to work with the global standard setter and other leading valuation organisations throughout the world, to ensure international standards enhance the reliability and transparency of valuation data. Our members use valuations for many reasons, ranging from investment decisions and performance analysis of assets, to financial reporting and audit. While many businesses operate internationally, valuation standards have historically been market-specific, creating inconsistency and restricting their ability to compare information on a like-for-like basis around the world. The IVSC is working to align international best practice in valuation and by doing so, support business and protect financial markets for the public good.

Our members will have access to the most recent softcopy version of the International Valuation Standards for reference purposes which is for member personal, non-commercial use. Hardcopies are available to order from the IVSC Book shop.
