- First meeting between leading associations of valuation companies took place at 8 November 2012 in Rome. There was considered the possibility of creating an “international forum” among associations of valuation companies to discuss and share common principles which are important to association members. The participants of the meeting from Italy, Portugal, Spain and Russia decided to adopt “ForVal” – Forum of Valuation Companies’ Associations which supposed to have a global perspective.

As an open and free forum, at this stage ForVal will also accept within the discussion individual valuation and/or certification companies.

ForVal’s first step been done is a drafting of a letter of intents, stating its mission and key principles.
