in the measurement. The principles are also available in French. passing the responsibility for measuring the building work down the supply chain to the contractor or sub-contractor. Any comments on the principles should be sent to the RICS Construction Faculty. However. It is in the interests of the industry as a whole. by implication. the Principles of Measurement (International) (POMI) were still being used in about half of the countries and are still widely used on international contracts. The key to the success of the use of bills of quantities is a clear understanding by all parties to the contract of what is included. RICS is grateful to the original authors: Michael Rainbird. in order to remove the need for duplication. and that the principles therefore need to be flexible in order to accommodate variations in practice and techniques. These principles require a detailed specification and tender drawings to be provided. It is this that gives rise to the requirement for clearly defined standard methods of measurement. RICS recognises that circumstances vary from country to country. 95% of contractors would undertake their own measurement. Furthermore. that measurement is carried out consistently. There has been a trend in the UK and elsewhere to move away from measurement-based procurement. Alan Charter. Simon Cash Chairman RICS Construction Faculty December 2003 . However. research commissioned by the Construction Faculty showed that where bills of quantities were not provided as part of the procurement process. However. SW1P 3AD. German and Arabic. There is no doubt that the proliferation of procurement practices will continue. where design decisions are being passed down the supply chain.

A recent survey of its international membership carried out for the RICS Construction Faculty by the Building Cost Information Service (BCIS) identified that 14 of the 32 responding countries had their own method of measurement.
