The NAR Professional Standards Committee approved a package of recommendations concerning the applicability of the Code of Ethics to discriminatory speech and conduct. The six recommendations will be presented to the NAR Board of Directors for a vote at its November 13 meeting.

The recommendations can be grouped into three broad categories:

  1. Changes to the Code of Ethics’s applicability to a REALTOR®’s activities
  2. A new standard of practice under Article 10 that prohibits discriminatory speech and conduct
  3. Revisions to the definition of public trust.
