What is the Professional Standards Scheme?

The Professional Standards Scheme (the Scheme) is a legal instrument, established under the Professional Standards Act 1994 (the Act) and approved by the Professional Standards Councils.

The statutory objectives of the Scheme are reciprocal in nature:
  • It binds Consulting Surveyors National (as the occupational association for the surveying profession in Australia) to monitor, enforce and improve the professional standards of its Members, and protect consumers of professional services; and
  • Serves to cap the civil liability or damages the Consulting Surveyors National Scheme participants may be required to pay if a Court upholds a claim against them.
