National Association of REALTORS® Code of Ethics Requirement

Additionally, REALTORS® are also required to fulfill a Code of Ethics requirement every 3 years. Ethics is both a membership requirement and a CE requirement.


Beginning with Code of Ethics Cycle 8 all NAR members will be required to complete two hours of fair housing training every three years. The move is intended to ensure real estate professionals are aware of and following rules related to the national Fair Housing Act. The three-year cycle for existing agents will begin in 2025 in conjunction with NAR’s Code of Ethics training.
