The International Forum of Valuation Companies' Associations has been launched
On November 8, 2012 the first international meeting between leading associations of valuation companies took place in Rome. The associations present were ATASA (Spain), ASAVAL (Portugal), ASSOVIB (Italy) and NUEO (Russia). Two certification companies (CCS, Italy and SGS Vostok Limited, Russia) were also involved. Together, the interested parties established an "international forum" among associations of valuation companies to discuss and share common principles which are important to association members.
The participants decided to adopt the name "ForVal" - Forum of Valuation Companies' Associations, which will have a global perspective and will accept within the discussion individual valuation companies and accredited certification bodies.
On March 5, 2013 ForVal adopted the letter of intent, stating its mission and key principles, which has been signed by all members and is available upon request.
The objective of ForVal is to share best practices and protecting the quality of service provided by valuation companies.
