Interagency Appraisal Complaint Form

OMB 1557-0314

Section 1473(p) of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act provides that if the Appraisal Subcommittee (ASC) of the Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council (FFIEC) determines, six months after enactment of that section (i.e., January 21, 2011), that no national hotline exists to receive complaints of non-compliance with appraisal independence standards and Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP), then the ASC shall establish and operate such a hotline (ASC Hotline). The statute requires that the ASC Hotline shall include a toll-free telephone number and an email address. Section 1473(p) further directs the ASC to refer complaints received through the ASC Hotline to the appropriate government bodies for further action, which may include referrals to the OCC, the Federal Reserve Board (Board), the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC), the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA), the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), and State agencies. On January 12, 2011, the ASC determined that a national appraisal hotline did not exist, and a notice of that determination was published in the Federal Register on January 28, 2011, (76 FR 5161). As a result, the ASC established a hotline to refer complaints to appropriate federal and state regulators. Representatives from the OCC, the Board, the FDIC, the NCUA, (Agencies) and the CFPB met and established a process to facilitate the referral of complaints received through the ASC Hotline to the appropriate federal financial institution regulatory agency or agencies. The Agencies developed the Interagency Appraisal Complaint Form to collect information necessary to take further action on the complaint. The CFPB incorporated the process into one of their existing systems. The Interagency Appraisal Complaint Form was developed for use by those who wish to file a formal, written complaint that an entity subject to the jurisdiction of one or more of the Agencies, has failed to comply with the appraisal independence standards or USPAP. The Interagency Appraisal Complaint Form is designed to collect information necessary for the Agencies to take further action on a complaint from an appraiser, other individual, financial institution, or other entities. The Agencies use the information to take further action on the complaint to the extent the complaint relates to an issue within their jurisdiction. This non-material change would add a foreign address field to the form.
