The board was created in 1991 with the responsibility to protect the public and Oregon financial institutions through regulation and supervision of licensed and certified real estate appraisers and appraisal management companies in the state. In addition, the board ensures that real estate appraisals are issued in writing and conducted in compliance with Oregon statutes and administrative rules, and the federal Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice. The board is a semi-independent agency with seven full time staff members and eight board members appointed by the Governor.
