Two proposals to implement new appraisal standards under the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (the “Dodd-Frank Act”) were released by federal financial agencies on August 15.

Both proposals are subject to a 60-day comment period, and are expected to be finalized by early next year.
