Delaware Enacts PSYPACT
The Association of State and Provincial Psychology Boards (ASPPB) recently announced that Delaware’s Governor John Carney signed PSYPACT legislation (DE HB 172) into law on June 27th, 2019, making Delaware the 11th state to enact PSYPACT.
ASPPB has been successful at being advanced in these states, which have active legislation to become PSYPACT states in the near future:
- District of Columbia B 145
- New Hampshire HB 483
- New Hampshire SB 232
- North Carolina HB 297
- Pennsylvania SB 67
- Rhode Island SB 682
More information regarding the progress of PSYPACT in these states can be found on the Legislative Updates page of the PSYPACT website.
What Happens Next?
As explained by Marian Burnetti-Atwell, PsyD, the CEO of ASPPB in a recent webinar hosted by TBHI (available on demand) , the PSYPACT Commission is established and will be meeting for the first time in July of 2019. It’s goal is to create the Rules and Bylaws for PSYPACT. After this process is finalized, licensed psychologists will then be able to apply for and use ASPPB certificates, which include the E.Passport and the Interjurisdictional Practice Certificate (IPC). They, thereafter will be able to use these certificates to conduct temporary, in-person, face-to-face practice in those states that have accepted the ASPPB PSYPACT.
