Personal use of the logo
As a Society of Chartered Surveyors Ireland and RICS member, you have the right to use the logo on personal stationery (e.g. business cards) whether you are a partner, director or employee.
This applies to all qualified members, Fellows (FSCSI/FRICS), Professional Members (MSCSI/MRICS) and Associate Members (AssocSCSI/AssocRICS).
When organisations can and cannot use the logo
A practice providing independent surveying services in construction, land or property to the public can use the logos on its stationery (e.g. corporate letterheads, websites, marketing materials).
However, these organisations must:
have one or more chartered or associate surveyor directors or partners involved in surveying activity; or
be a department within an organisation where a fully qualified Society of Chartered Surveyors Ireland and RICS member is the director or manager.
Please note that there are strict brand guideline rules which set out the format and positioning of the logos. The Society of Chartered Surveyors Ireland and RICS logos must appear in one of the prescribed ‘lock-up’ formats at all times.
