Membership in International Organizations
NAVS has been a member of IVSC since 2009. The International Valuation Standards Council (IVSC) is an independent, non-profit organization that serves the public interest by setting up and implementing the universally adopted valuation standards.

iiBV together with its member associations and professional organizations of valuers leads the business valuation profession globally by providing educational opportunities for professional business valuers consistent with professional standards and ethics, and by promoting the exchange of information and cooperation internationally.
This provided an opportunity for NAVS to work on the education of business valuers together with iiBV, which represented prerequisites for obtaining the globally recognized quality designation ASA BV for business valuation.
After several years of cooperation on the organization of internationally recognized training courses in the English language for business valuers in Serbia, NAVS signed a tripartite agreement NAVS/iiBV/ASA enabling the valuers from Serbia to attend the iiBV educational program in the Serbian language and thus meet one of the conditions stipulated for obtaining the ASA BV professional designation.

The first group of NAVS members, machinery, equipment, and plant valuers received their certificates in 2016.
