State Appraiser Regulatory Agency Resources

The Appraisal Foundation (Foundation) maintains a close relationship with state appraiser regulatory agencies and seeks their input on proposed changes to the Real Property Appraiser Qualification Criteria and Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice.  Additionally, the Foundation provides resources to the states to clarify and help implement the minimum qualifications and standards. 

The Foundation has also re-instituted the State Regulatory Advisory Group. More information can be found here.

Association of Appraiser Regulatory Officials

The Foundation works closely with the Association of Appraiser Regulatory Officials (AARO), an organization of state appraiser regulatory agencies.   

Disciplinary Action Matrix

The Appraisal Foundation has issued voluntary guidance that is intended to assist state appraiser regulatory agencies with enforcement cases.
