Resources for State Appraiser Regulatory Agencies

 

As required by Title XI of the Financial Institutions Reform, Recovery, and Enforcement Act of 1989 (Title XI), the Appraisal Subcommittee (ASC) monitors each State appraiser regulatory program (Program) for compliance with Title XI, Appraiser Qualifications Board (AQB) Real Property Appraiser Qualification Criteria and ASC Policy Statements. The ASC’s Compliance Review of the State Programs focuses on three key components of Title XI: (1) complying with Title XI mandates and requirements of ASC Policy Statements; (2) maintaining a strong regulatory program; and (3) limiting overall risk of Program failure.

 

The ASC fulfills its responsibilities to oversee State Programs largely through on-site visits to the States. The ASC performs an on-site Compliance Review (Review) of all State[1] Programs on a two-year Review Cycle. If significant concerns are identified, a State may be placed on a one-year Review Cycle, or a Follow-up Review may be scheduled, usually within six to nine months. Click here for an overview of the Compliance Review process. The ASC issues a final ASC Compliance Review Report (Report) with the ASC Finding on the Program’s overall compliance, or lack thereof, with Title XI. You will find copies of the current Reports on the “State Compliance Review” page of this website. Past Reports can be found in the Public Documents Library under “State Compliance Review correspondence”.

 

The ASC issues Policy Statements, to assist the States in understanding the ASC’s expectation for compliance with Title XI. The Policy Statements were revised June 1, 2013, and reflect the general framework the ASC uses in the Compliance Review process.

 

States may find helpful documents to assist in carrying out their Title XI responsibilities on the “Helpful Documents for Regulators” link on this website.

 

Title XI created an unique partnership and regulatory structure between the Federal and State governments and the private sector. The ASC encourages States to utilize ASC Policy Managers as an educational and informational resource. Policy Managers are available to assist States with questions and concerns relating to all aspects of their Programs. States are encouraged to notify their assigned Policy Manager when there are any Program staffing changes, structural changes, and/or statutory and regulatory proposals involving the Program.

 

Policy Managers assist in policy oversight and program analysis, development and implementation; monitor State Programs for compliance with Title XI; maintain liaison with the Appraisal Foundation, appraisal organizations, and Federal regulatory agencies; and have primary responsibility for their designated States. State assignments rotate every four years.
