Appraisal Standards Board 2015 Summary of Actions Related To Proposed USPAP Changes

On February 6, 2015, the Appraisal Standards Board (ASB) adopted modifications to the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP). This action was the culmination of a period of 19 months and four exposure drafts of proposed revisions to USPAP and one exposure draft of new proposed Advisory Opinions and edits to an existing Advisory Opinion. Written comments were received in response to each document, and oral comments were provided at each of four public meetings. Each member of the ASB read and carefully considered every comment. The Board then developed a work plan to address the issues brought forward, and adopted revisions for the 2016-17 edition of USPAP.
