At the National Association Board of Directors meeting on November 11, 2019, major changes to MLS rules and the Code of Ethics training requirements were adopted:
Clear Cooperation Policy: All listings will have to be put into the MLS system within one business day of when they are first marketed in any form to the general public. MLSs have until May 1, 2020 to implement the policy.
Code of Ethics Training: The Code of Ethics training requirements have been moved to an every three year requirement. Members now have until December 31, 2021 to complete the current requirement. Other changes were made to rules on what classes meet the requirements and the content required in the training.
