The RICS joined forces with the International Facility Management Association (IFMA), one of the leading member bodies focused on the facilities management (FM) industry worldwide.

The IFMA-RICS collaboration represents the most significant evolution in the history of facility management (FM), providing an unprecedented level of industry support to meet the growing demands of the 25 million FM practitioners around the world. The two organizations are aligning standards and professional development for the industry, uniting the global FM community to increase consistency and unification of strategy across the life cycle of the built environment. The collaboration offers a single suite of professional qualifications in facility management, providing global recognition for FMs of all educational backgrounds, skills, work experiences and career goals. These efforts serve to raise the profile of FM, giving a greater voice and increased status to the profession to shape the future of the built environment and enable business success.
