The Appraisal Foundation – a nonprofit organization that establishes standards for appraisers – has announced that it is establishing a “Consistent Enforcement Task Force.” The Foundation stated, that “[w]ith 55 different state real property appraiser regulatory bodies enforcing USPAP, there is a wide range of disciplinary actions taking place. While uniformity may be an unrealistic goal, there is a need for greater consistency in enforcement. One objective is the development of recommended disciplinary guidelines.”

The Task Force will provide a set of recommended disciplinary guidelines. The Task Force is composed of Trustees, current and former state appraiser regulators and an Appraisal
Subcommittee representative.
