Appraisal Subcommittee 

The Appraisal Subcommittee's (ASC) mission is to ensure that real estate appraisers, who perform appraisals in real estate transactions that could expose the United States government to financial loss, are sufficiently trained and tested to assure competency and independent judgment according to uniform high professional standards and ethics.  The ASC is responsible for monitoring the individual states in the licensing and certification of real property appraisers.  In addition, the ASC acts as an oversight mechanism for activities of The Appraisal Foundation (Foundation) relating to real property appraisal. For additional information on the ASC and its activities, please visit the ASC website.


National Registry of the Appraisal Subcommittee

The National Registry is a database containing selected information about the state licensed and certified real estate appraisers.  The National Registry does NOT contain information on ALL appraisers.  It only contains information about appraisers who currently are, or have been, certified or licensed by a U.S. State, Territory or possession to perform appraisals in connection with Federally-related real estate transactions.  Only State certified or licensed appraisers who are listed on this National Registry as having currently valid certifications or licenses are authorized under Federal law to perform appraisals in connection with federally related transactions.  Note that expiration dates on actual certificates or licensing documents may differ from expiration dates listed in the National Registry.  National Registry expiration dates specifically relate to the legal authority of certified or licensed appraisers to perform appraisals in connection with federally related transactions.
