  2. If you are not active on the National Registry, you will need to submit a certified copy (not more than one year old) of the history of your classification from the appraiser regulatory agency of the state in which you are a resident.*

*Note: If you have received a disciplinary sanction in another state, you must submit a certified copy of the history of your classification from that state.
