ASPPB is the association of psychology licensing boards in the United States and Canada and was formed in 1961 to serve the psychology boards in the two countries. ASPPB created and maintains a standardized written exam, the Examination for Professional Practice in Psychology (EPPP), which is used by licensing boards to assess candidates for licensure and certification.
ASPPB advocates for the advancement of mobility by offering several mobility programs to assist in licensure of psychologists. Committed to serving as a voice for those responsible for the regulation of the practice of psychology, ASPPB has drafted a Model Act, Model Regulations, a Code of Conduct and guidelines for the use and/or adoption by state, territorial and provincial psychology boards.
This website tries to utilize generic language where possible. Hence, the word "Board” is intended to include all agencies regulating psychology. The more commonly used term for a board of psychology in Canada is "College”. Similarly, the members of the board ("Board”) are often collectively referred to as the "Council” in Canada.
