Valuer Registration

New Zealand Applicants

Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors (RICS)

Valuation Faculty (formerly General Practice Division).  Applicants are required to be MRICS with Valuer Registration to Level 3

Trans-Tasman Mutual Recognition

A valuer registered in an equivalent occupation in an Australian jurisdiction that maintains a valuer registration regime (currently Queensland and Western Australia), may apply for registration as a valuer in New Zealand.  


The Board has reciprocity agreements with countries where it has been established that educational and practice standards are equivalent to those required by the New Zealand Board for obtaining registration.

Other Overseas Qualifications

Because of the wide range of education qualifications of applicants, especially international applicants, it is not possible to provide a single academic pathway to registration. Accordingly the evaluation process assesses prior tertiary learning using a “scoring” scheme based on levels (from 1 to 4) and thereafter specifies the additional education requirements for each score.
