Australian Property Institute


Since its first publication in 1999, the Australian Property Institute’s Professional Practice Manual has been bi-ennially issued for its members’ mandatory use.

The API and the Property Institute of New Zealand (PINZ) jointly published the Fifth Edition of “Professional Practice” in 2006, cementing the close ties between the two professional property organisations.

The current edition, again a joint publication renamed the Australia and New Zealand Valuation and Property Standards, was launched in June 2008 and for the first time is now freely available as an on-line manual and property consultants’ and users’ resource.


Professional property practitioners, legal advisers, accountants, auditors, financiers and members of the public generally can now directly access the on-line manual.
