What is USPAP?

The Uniform Standards of Professional Practice (USPAP) is the generally recognized ethical and performance standards for the appraisal profession in the United States. It is published by the Appraisal Standards Board (ASB) of The Appraisal Foundation (TAF).

USPAP was adopted by the United States Congress in 1989 following the problems caused by the savings and loan crisis and defines a set of recommended procedures and ethical standards for all appraisal services, including real estate, personal property, business, and mass appraisal. Compliance is required for state-licensed and state-certified real property appraisers involved in federally related real estate transactions.

What is USPAP Training?

To receive a state issued credential, appraisers must take and pass a 15-hour course with a written examination based on the material in the USPAP publication. After receiving this credential, appraisers must take the 7-hour update course every two years to remain current. McKissock is the exclusive provider of TAF’s national online, self-paced courses for both the 15- and 7-hour courses.

USPAP Standards are applicable to real property, personal property, business valuation, and mass appraisal.
