IPC for PSYPACT

Since 2007, ASPPB has offered a standalone Interjurisdictional Practice Certificate (IPC) as a temporary practice mobility credential. This standalone credential has offered psychologists in-person practice privileges, into jurisdictions that accept the IPC, for up to 30 work days per year. Currently, seven jurisdictions accept this standalone IPC credential (Georgia, Idaho, Kentucky, Mississippi, New Hampshire, Ohio, and South Carolina).

The Psychology Interjurisdictional Compact, PSYPACT, has now achieved the threshold number of jurisdictions (seven) to begin forming its governing Commission, required to make this interstate compact operational. Under the rules of PSYPACT, psychologists who hold an active license in a compact state will be able to apply for the IPC, which would allow for in-person psychology privileges under the IPC only into other compact states.

In order to reduce the potential for confusion and assist member jurisdictions in their efforts to protect the public through appropriate mobility credentialing, the ASPPB Board of Directors has voted to sunset the standalone IPC certificate.

As of June 30, 2019, no new applications for standalone IPCs will be accepted. Current IPC holders will be able to use their IPC into any of the seven currently accepting IPC states, until June 1, 2020. At that time the standalone IPC program will be closed. Current IPC holders will have their IPC placed into a holding state, ready for reactivation if that holder becomes licensed in a compact state.

 

The Board of Directors wanted to ensure however that current standalone IPC holders had enough time to act on their temporary practice plans based on that IPC, and therefore decided to wait a full year before sun-setting the credential. We thank you for your ongoing support of ASPPBā€™s Mobility Program and invite you to contact us with any questions or concerns you may have regarding this announcement.
