-- PEOPLECERT today announced that it has joined the European Group of Valuers’ Associations (TEGoVA) as an observer member, adding to the global recognition of the PEOPLECERT Professional Valuers Certification scheme that was launched by the organization just over a year ago. TEGoVA is a European non-profit making association composed of 46 valuers' associations from 27 countries, representing 70,000 professionals across Europe.
PEOPLECERT has developed the PEOPLECERT Professional Valuers Certification scheme in coordination with the Association of Greek Valuers (AVAG), the Body of Sworn-in Valuers of Greece (SOE) - both members of TEGoVA - and the Athens University of Economics and Business. The scheme meets TEGoVa’s requirements and the requirements of ISO 17024 while it matches international property valuation practice standards and is a prerequisite for the awarding of the Recognized European Valuers (REV) title for members of AVAG and SOE.
‘Becoming a member of TEGoVA is a great honour for us, as our participation in a European association that comprises of the most acclaimed professionals in the industry demonstrates the value of the PEOPLECERT Professional Valuers Certification scheme and enhances its recognition on a European level’, says Konstantinos Kesentes, PEOPLECERT’s General Manager.
The PEOPLECERT Professional Valuers Certification scheme is part of the PEOPLECERT Professional Certifications portfolio, designed to meet professionals’
need to prove their competence against independent, globally recognized standards in highly competitive industries. Other certifications in the PEOPLECERT portfolio include ISO 20000, ISO 27000, ISO 14001 and ISO 9001.
