Members of the New Zealand Institute of Valuers are required to have a certain standard of competency, knowledge and education as well as adhering to a code of conduct and ethical standards. These 'Professional Obligations' are a set of practices, ethics, and behaviors that members must adhere to. These sets of standards are frequently agreed to by the NZIV Council, which represents the interests of the profession, with the NZIV Rules and Code of Ethics also requiring the approval of the Minister responsible for the Valuers Act 1948.
