ANNOUNCEMENTS


 2022-2023 7-Hour National USPAP Update Course 

On July 8, 2022, the Appraisal Subcommittee issued a statement concerning a commissioned, comprehensive, and independent review of the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) and the Real Property Appraiser Qualification Criteria (Criteria). As part of that statement, it was cited that findings of the review, with respect to the 7-Hour USPAP update course, found that the new fair housing module failed to provide accurate and effective guidance to appraisers, provides an inaccurate summary of fair housing laws, fails to include applicable statutes, and fails to provide specific guidance and examples of what is prohibited by law. 

Based on these findings, the ASC has requested that the Appraisal Foundation address these concerns by modifying course content. In conjunction with that, the ASC has advised that they do not intend to criticize states based on their determination as to whether credentialed appraisers will be required to complete the 2022-2023 7-Hour USPAP Update course. 

Given that the current 7-Hour USPAP update course is deficient in content. The Oklahoma Real Estate Appraiser Board (Board) has determined that it will not enforce the requirement to complete the current 7-Hour USPAP update by the current deadline of December 31, 2022. Nonetheless, the Board considers this education valuable and recommends that appraisers consider completing this course anyway. 42 hours of continuing education are still required to renew your license, regardless of whether you choose to complete this course. 

The new 7-Hour USPAP cycle for Oklahoma appraisers will commence January 1, 2023 as to completion of the 2024-2025 USPAP. Completion of the 7-Hour USPAP update course associated with this version will be mandatory.

EXTENSION OF 2020‐2021 USPAP

The Appraisal Standards Board has announced that the current edition of the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) will be extended by one year. The effective date of the current version of USPAP is now December 31, 2022.

This will not eliminate the requirement to complete the 7‐Hour USPAP Update under Oklahoma’s current USPAP cycle of 2021‐2022. A new USPAP course is currently being written and will be released on approximately October 1, 2021. You do not need to purchase a new book.
