The latest edition of the International Valuation Standards (IVS) marks an important milestone towards harmonizing valuation practice worldwide. IVS serve as the key guide for valuation professionals globally and will underpin consistency, transparency and confidence in valuations which are key to investment decisions, financial reporting and financial market stability. The Standards were drafted by the IVSC’s independent technical boards and published following an extensive consultation process involving Valuation Profession Organisations, regulatory authorities, other standard setting organisations, valuation service providers, individual professionals, valuation end users and academics. IVSC member and sponsor organisations are provided with digital copies of IVS. Non-members/sponsors can access IVS through the IVS Online portal. The latest version of the Standards brings greater depth and clarity to the IVS, as recommended by member organisation, including the major valuation and accounting firms and Valuation Professional Organisations.
