Advancing Excellence in the MLS Industry
CMLS is strategically focused on leading the conversation around MLS policy and advocating for MLS policies that foster innovation, ensure gold star standard data and ultimately power the professional to meet consumer expectations.
MLS Data Access and Use
CMLS believes a national policy that provides broker participants access to MLS data for use in their internal systems is an important step in pushing MLS policy forward. CMLS also believes that it’s important to ensure policies are clear.
CMLS and its Data Access Concepts workgroup drafted the ADS Policy and it was submitted to the NAR MLS Technology and Emerging Issues Advisory Board (TEIAB) in September. The TEIAB revised the ADS policy into Policy Statements 8.7 and 8.6. CMLS recommends friendly amendments to clarify draft Policy Statements 8.7 and 8.6.
