A Professional Land Surveyor renders a highly technical service in compliance with applicable laws, regulations, codes and court decisions set forth by the Surveyors Council of Nigeria (SURCON).

Because of the special skills and complexities involved in surveying land, the government of Nigeria via its various agencies limits the practice to only those surveyors duly registered by the Surveyors Council of Nigeria (SURCON).

In order to protect the public from inferior land surveying, there are Minimum Standards for all types of Land Surveys. These standards describe recommended procedures for a survey and the minimum information to be provided to the client.
