International Valuations Standards - API member access

The IVSs, effective from 1 January, 2012 are published in a single book and the approved TIPs are published as individual booklets

The Australian Property Institute (API) has reached an agreement with the International Valuations Standards Council (IVSC) and established relevant links and protocols to provide online access for valuer members to IVSonline.

Access costs will be covered by the API, which means the majority of members will be offered both the Australia & New Zealand Standards as well as the International Valuation Standards at no extra cost.

Those wishing to access the standards must complete the accompanying registration form (PDF) and send it to API National Office.

Members will then be registered and emailed a username and password. They will access www.elearning.api.org.au.

Once logged in there will be a link visible for International Valuation Standards and Technical Information Papers. Members can click the link and be taken directly to the IVSonline page.

Access details will be explained once registration is completed.

Publications and pronouncements currently available through IVSonline include:

• International Valuation Standards 2011
• TIP 1 – Discounted Cash Flow
• TIP 2 – The Cost Approach for Tangible Assets
• TIP 3 – The Valuation of Intangible Assets

IVSonline provides subscribers access to the current IVSs and all approved TIPs. Not only is all the material in one place but it provides users with easy navigation across all publications and the facility to search for key words or subjects.

The IVSs, effective from 1 January, 2012 are published in a single book and the approved TIPs are published as individual booklets.
