DESCRIPTION OF the EAANA ORGANIZATION
- The express purpose of the association is to provide a professional appraisal society representing all aspects of the machinery and equipment industries.

In 1995 we extended membership to all disciplines of machinery and equipment and the Association is now international with over 120 members. In 1997 we adopted the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) as the standard of practice for our members, adopted a Code of Ethics, we revised our membership requirements and established designations for members. EAANA was accepted as a member of The Appraisal Foundation Advisory Council (TAFAC) in 1999.
