In 2001, in The Netherlands, the legal inauguration of appraisers and estate agents has been abolished. This means that nowadays everyone can call themself an appraiser or estate agent. There are no longer sworn estate agents or sworn appraisers. To give people clearness, they set up several registers. Appraisers and estate agents can sign up for these registers, but only if they satisfy their strict quality requirements.

One of these registers originated from the foundation VastgoedCert. Registered estate agents and appraisers may call themselves Register Makelaar-Taxateur (RMT). The association RVT is the branch organization of the Register Vastgoed Taxateurs in The Netherlands. Before 2000, Register Vastgoed Taxateurs were called sworn appraisers or sworn estate agents. Sworn appraisers and estate agents met strict quality requirements.
