International Land Measurement Standards (ILMS)

The International Land Measurement Standard Coalition (the Coalition) formed on 10th October 2016 at the UN’s Food and Agricultural Organisation (FAO) headquarters in Rome, Italy. The Coalition is a non-governmental, not-for-profit coalition of land professionals, from over 30 not-for-profit professional and technical organisations (as listed). The Coalition aims to bring about consistency in land and real property transaction reporting standards worldwide. This is to be achieved through the creation and adoption of ILMS. In practice the ILMS may be adopted systematically, i.e. by governments putting in place functioning LIS or sporadically on a transaction driven basis. ILMS sets out a structure for describing and reporting relevant land information for land transaction purposes.
