The following changes were adopted by the Board in a public meeting on February 6, 2015, and will be incorporated in the 2016 – 17 edition of USPAP and associated guidance material with an effective date of January 1, 2016:

  • Revisions to the RECORD KEEPING RULE
  • Revisions to STANDARD 3
  • Revisions to the Definition of Assignment Results and Confidential Information and to the Confidentiality section of the ETHICS RULE (Note: this change included language that appeared in the Third Exposure Draft, but not in the Fourth Exposure Draft.)
  • Revisions to Reporting Standards
  • Other USPAP Edits
  • Retirement of all STATEMENTS ON APPRAISAL STANDARDS <<< that’s interesting – but should make USPAP easier to understand!

  • ADVISORY OPINION 34: Retrospective and Prospective Value Opinions
  • ADVISORY OPINION 7: Marketing Time Opinions
  • ADVISORY OPINION 35: Reasonable Exposure Time in Real and Personal Property Opinions of Value
