This action is exempt from the executive branch review process.
USPAP definition 2018-19 update
General Information
Action Summary Regulations currently define USPAP to be “the 2016-2017 edition of those standards promulgated by the Appraisal Standards Board of the Appraisal Foundation for use by all appraisers in the preparation of appraisal reports.” The ASB updates USPAP every two years and has issued the 2018-2019 Edition, which is effective from January 1, 2018, through December 31, 2019. Because the Board’s regulatory definition references a now outdated edition of USPAP, this exempt action is necessary to update 18 VAC 130-20-10 to define USPAP as the 2018-2019 edition.
