Admission as an ACAA Registered Valuer


ACAA Registered Valuers are the leading group of independent, experienced, specialist fine art valuers in Australia.

Valuers registered with the ACAA need to meet the strictest criteria for any valuers’ council or industry group in Australia.  

All ACAA Registered Valuers must be Approved Valuers under the Australian Government’s Cultural Gift Program, within their area of specialisation. 

Admission as a member to the ACAA is required. 
  • ACAA membership is based on relevant tertiary qualifications, at least 5 years of relevant industry experience, independence as a professional consultant/valuer, referral from two art industry leaders, including an existing ACAA member
  • Membership must be endorsed by the consent (or abstention) of all Executive Committee members


Codes of Conduct


ACAA Registered Valuers must abide by the Cultural Gift Program Valuer Code of Conduct.

ACAA Registered Valuers must also abide by the ACAA Code of Practice found on page 6 of the ACAA Policy Document.


Certificate of Registration, ACAA Registered Valuers Logo and Seals




The ACAA Registered Valuers logo is an indication that the valuer you engage has met all the standards of excellence required to be registered with the ACAA. 

ACAA Registered Valuers are issued with a Certificate of Registration, which outlines the valuer’s name, registration number, registration period, and date of admission. 

Some ACAA Registered Valuers may choose to emboss documents with a personal valuer’s seal, which also displays their name, number and registration period.

Registration is strictly for a two (2) year period only, after which all valuers need to reapply for renewal.

Removal as an ACAA Registered Valuer will take place anytime, should the valuer fail to meet the strict ethical standards required to maintain registration.
