The International Association of Certified Valuation Specialists (IACVS) was founded in 2000 to provide worldwide support to professionals who perform either valuations or are engaged in fraud deterrence. IACVS is the first and only international association to provide such support.
IACVS’s objective is to transfer “best practices” in both fields of endeavor. In the valuation field, IACVS promotes the uniform application of valuation theory, approaches, methods and models throughout the world. In the field of fraud deterrence and forensic accounting, IACVS encourages the development and dissemination of consistent and demonstrable systems and techniques for both detection and prevention of fraud.
This mission is accomplished through the establishment and support of national associations known as Charter Members. The Charter Members represent separate regions or countries, each with practitioner/members who provide services to their valuation and fraud prevention communities.
