About the Board

The Valuers Registration Board of Queensland (the Board) is Queensland’s property valuation regulator. Established in 1965 to increase the standards of valuation work and to provide a measure of protection in the public interest, the Board is responsible for the administration of the Valuers Registration Act 1992 (the Act) and the Valuers Registration Regulation 2013.

The Board is a self-funded statutory body who reports to the Minister for Natural Resources, Mines and Energy and has an administrative relationship with its portfolio agency, the Department of Natural Resources, Mines and Energy.

The Act establishes the Board and provides for the registration and discipline of registered valuers in Queensland.

The main objectives of the Act are to:

  • protect the public by ensuring that a person registered under the Act is competent to value land in Queensland
  • maintain public confidence in the standard of services provided by registered valuers
  • impose obligations on persons about the practice of land valuation and their professional conduct
  • manage complaints and disciplinary matters concerning valuers.

The vision of the Board is to foster professional excellence in Queensland registered valuers.
