Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP)

USPAP Defined  618-233-1000 // 314- 690-1978

USPAP is considered the quality control standard applicable for real and personal property, intangibles, and business valuation appraisal analysis and reports in the United States and its territories. USPAP was first developed to oversee the U.S. mortgage and banking system.

The Appraisal Qualifications Board set forth minimum qualifications for appraisal licensure and its work has been adopted by all states and territories. All U.S. states and territories require appraisal licensure for valuation work performed for Federally-regulated institutions; however, 35 states require appraisal licensure for all valuation work performed, whether Federally regulated or for other use. Since 2006, USPAP has been updated in two-year cycles, which begin on January 1 of all even-numbered years.
