The purpose of the National Standards is to ensure each individual holding a designation issued by the Canadian Institute of Quantity Surveyors upholds a consistent set of standards and ethics.

The National Standards are established and modified from time to time by resolution of the Board, which is comprised of Directors from across Canada who are elected by the Members.

The Board is committed to reviewing the National Standards at least annually, and more frequently as required.

If any person has suggestions on improving the National Standards, you are encouraged to contact a Director on the Board.
