The RICS application process has changed slightly as a result of the decision of the Eurocom case. (for more information on this case, click here). The explanatory note that accompanies the application form now states that any misrepresentation in the application could result in the entire appointment process being invalidated and rendering any decision or award unenforceable. They also now state clearly on their website that they do not automatically provide a copy of the application form to the non-applicant party, but one will be made available on request. In light of the Eurocom decision, it may be a good idea if you are the Referring Party to send a copy of the application to the other side, and if you are the Responding Party and you have not received a copy to request one from the nominating body!
