Utah Recorders Standards

The Uintah County Recorder may adopt policies and procedures governing the office of the Uintah County Recorder that do not conflict with Utah Code Section 17-21 or the rules made by the County Recorder Standards Board under Utah Code Section 63C-30-202. (Utah Code 17-21-1(4))

The Utah Association of CountyRecorders created a Standards Committee on December 19th, 2022. The UAC Recorders Standards Committee determines best practices, prepares standards, and presents them for approval by a majority of the Association members. Standards receiving a 75% approval by a quorum of the Utah Association of County Recorders members become a standard of the Association.

The County Recorder Standards Board was created by the State Legislature on May 3rd, 2023. (63C-30-201) The County Recorder Standards Board makes rules that establish statewide standards for county recorders to eliminate inconsistencies and promote uniformity throughout the state with respect to services provided by a county recorder.
