International Property Measurement Standards (IPMS), published in Nov 2014, is a new, principles-based, international standard which sets out how to measure property assets. It is a universal language for global profession to share information about properties and allows comparison across different markets and specialisms. 

The adoption and incorporation of IPMS will result in some changes to current measurement practices.  Alex will set through the key features of the IPMS, the use of IPMS in measuring properties, share consistent information with other surveyors and real estate professionals and reflect IPMS in the valuation reports.
