Important Announcements

New Administrative Rules Effective September 20, 2016

New Rules are in effect.  The revisions include the allowing of appraisers to submit appraisals for compliance review midway through the experience hours required to upgrade to a higher level of licensure or certification; adding midway review upgrade fees; and establishing allegation of non-compliance as the first step for initiation of an investigation and prior to formal complaint charges.  See ARSD 20:14.

It is important that any email and address changes be reported to the Appraiser Certification Program as timely as possible. For appraisal management companies, the changes are to be reported to our office within five days of the change. For appraisers, it is to be immediately upon any change of residential or business address, along with the email address, if available.
