This paper will analyse the difficulties in providing a global quality assurance system for Surveyors. Using case studies from the United Kingdom and elsewhere opportunities for harmonising Quality Assurance systems will be explored. The difficulties in moving towards common quality assurance systems will be analysed. Possible alternatives in the form of the development a knowledge bank of mutual agreements and top up qualifications will be investigated. The paper also looks at the role of FIG in promoting mobility of labour across national boundaries. This paper relates directly to the work of the Commission 2 Work Plan which has established a Working Group 2.4 – Accreditation and Quality Assurance. This working group, chaired by the author, is investigating cross border quality assurances in Surveying Education. This paper continues that work.
