News-Antique.com - May 02,2007 - USPAP sets a unified code of ethics for standards for appraisal report writing and many courts now expect appraisers to be tested in USPAP and to prepare appraisals which conform to the USPAP criteria. The AAA USPAP curriculum, developed over ten years ago, is significantly different from other USPAP courses. Developed by the Appraisers Association of America, the major concentration of its curriculum is in the field of personal property, and examples to illustrate the standards are drawn from different areas of personal property appraising including fine arts, furniture, decorative arts, collectibles, gems and jewelry.
The course and concluding examination will be held on two days from 9:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. The USPAP course has been organized to conform to the criteria set forth by the Appraisal Foundation in Washington, DC. Participants meet for a total of 15 hours including the examination. Satisfactory completion of the examination allows participants to state that they have successfully completed the USPAP course and examination in personal property. AAA/ISA/ASA Members who attend will receive 15 points towards certification or re-certification.
New! IRS Regulations for non-cash charitable donations now calls for all appraisals to be completed in compliance with “generally accepted appraisal standards.” An appraisal will be treated as having been conducted in accordance with generally accepted appraisal standards . . . if, for example, the appraisal is consistent with the substance and principles of the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (“USPAP”), as developed by the Appraisal Standards Board of the Appraisal Foundation
