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.


Join the State Regulatory Advisory Group

The Appraisal Foundation is pleased to announce that it will be reinstituting a State Regulatory Advisory Group, a forum for discussion between the foundation, its boards, and state regulators. The Advisory Group will meet virtually, and it will be a geographically diverse panel composed of board members, administrators, investigators, and legal staff. This group will serve as a resource to the foundation boards and the profession on such issues as:

  • Addressing enforcement and regulatory issues relating to USPAP and the Real Property Appraiser Qualification Criteria.
  • Learning and discussing issues facing the state appraiser regulators.
  • Identifying disciplinary related USPAP issues that should be incorporated into the annual revisions to the 7-hour National USPAP Update Course.
  • Ensuring that the Qualification Criteria continues to reflect current capabilities and expectations of the marketplace regarding distance education, experience, and the content of the national examinations.

If you would like to be considered for appointment to the State Regulatory Advisory Group and be part of their first virtual call in July, please click here to apply by June 26.
