The International Property Measurement Standard Committee (IPMSC) is a platform of over 30 international organizations with the aim to setting measurement standards and enable properties to be measured on a transparent basis, so promoting market efficiency through greater confidence between investors, occupiers and funds. CEPI joined the Coalition and the Board of Trustees at the end of 2013. Responses to the Consultation Document, especially from parties actively involved in cross-border transactions, will be very helpful in finalising the Standard.

CEPI President Claudine Speltz took part, along with other distinguished speakers, in the discussions and gave a detailed presentation of CEPI’s views on the common training principles which are intended to allow more professions to benefit from automatic recognition of their professional qualifications.

The Italian association of property managers organised its yearly working day in Milano on last Janyary 28. Five hundred professionals discussed and reflected on the issues at stake in the reduction of energy use in buildings. For Claudine Speltz, CEPI President, “this initiative contributes not only to the awareness of professionals about regulations which, in large part, are prepared and detailed in Brussels, but above all expresses the concern, beyond borders, to share experiences and best practices amongst professionals whose occupation is becoming ever more complex and technical and whose clients expect a better qualified service”.
