The Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) is the generally recognized ethical and performance standards for the appraisal profession in the United States. USPAP was adopted by Congress in 1989, and contains standards for all types of appraisal services. Compliance is required for state-licensed and state-certified appraisers involved in federally-related real estate transactions, and now, personal property as well. USPAP is updated every two years so that appraisers have the information they need to deliver unbiased and thoughtful opinions of value.
To become a real property appraiser in the United States, appraisers must take the 15-Hour National USPAP Course (or its equivalent). The Personal Property version it is being offered before Conclave, April 25-26, 2020, hosted by David Rotenberg, ECGA, and taught by Mona Miller, ICGA.
