ETHICS RULE

An appraiser must not disclose: (1) confidential information; or (2) assignment results to anyone other than:

• the client;

• parties specifically authorized by the client;

• state appraiser regulatory agencies;

• third parties as may be authorized by due process of law; or

• a duly authorized professional peer review committee except when such disclosure to a committee would

violate applicable law or regulation.

An appraiser must take reasonable steps to safeguard access to confidential information and assignment results

by unauthorized individuals, whether such information or results are in physical or electronic form.

An appraiser must ensure that employees, co-workers, sub-contractors, or others who may have access to

confidential information or assignment results, are aware of the prohibitions on disclosure of such information

or results.

A member of a duly authorized professional peer review committee must not disclose confidential information

presented to the committee.

Comment: When all confidential elements of confidential information and assignment results are removed

through redaction or the process of aggregation, client authorization is not required for the disclosure of the

remaining information, as modified.
