OverviewThe South African Council for Valuers was established on 1 January 1983 by section 2 of the Valuers Act 23 of 1982. On 31 August 2001, the Council was replaced by the SA Council for the Property Valuers Profession established by section 2 of The Property Valuers Profession Act, 2000.
The Council's main functions are: registration of professional valuers, professional associated valuers and candidate valuers; maintenance of their integrity; enhancement of their status; improvement of their academic and other qualifications and of the standard of services rendered by them; protection of members of the public in their dealings with registered persons; drawing up and keeping up to date a register of all registered persons.
To perform the function of protecting members of the public, the Council has promulgated rules which, inter alia, prescribe a code of conduct with which valuers, associated valuers and candidate valuers have to comply in the performance of their work in property valuation.
