What is ASPPB?

The Association of State and Provincial Psychology Boards (ASPPB) is the alliance of state, provincial, and territorial agencies responsible for the licensure and certification of psychologists throughout the United States and Canada. ASPPB was formed in 1961 to serve psychology boards in the two countries. Currently, the psychology boards of all fifty states of the United States, the District of Columbia, the U.S. Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico, Guam and all ten provinces of Canada are members of ASPPB. Much of the impetus for its founding was related to mobility for practitioners. By consensus, the first step was to create and maintain a standardized written Examination for Professional Practice in Psychology (EPPP). ASPPB has done so since 1965.

Today, in addition to creating and maintaining the EPPP, ASPPB works to coordinate cooperative efforts of member boards and to facilitate communication between boards. It maintains a Disciplinary Data Bank and hosts a variety of committees. ASPPB also holds Annual and Midyear meetings that feature speakers, offer educational and interactive sessions and provides opportunities for Continuing Education. ASPPB Honors and Awards are presented at the Annual Meeting.

Additionally, ASPPB advocates for the advancement of mobility by encouraging board acceptance of the Certificate of Professional Qualification in Psychology (CPQ) and the ASPPB Agreement of Reciprocity (AOR). It maintains a Credentials Bank (CB) and provides a Score Transfer Service of the EPPP.

ASPPB committed to serving as a voice for those responsible for the regulation of the practice of psychology. In doing so, ASPPB has drafted a Model Act, Model Regulations, a Code of Conduct and guidelines for the use and/or adoption by state and provincial psychology boards.

To enhance services and support its member jurisdictions in fulfilling their goal of advancing public protection by:

  • Offering exemplary examination and credentialing programs
  • Providing state of the art programs and services to all our stakeholders
  • Serving as the source for the most current and accurate information about the regulation of psychologists
  • Contributing to the critical consumer protection perspective in the on-going development of the profession.



ASPPB is committed to quality, respect, responsiveness, accountability and transparency.

ASPPB is the foremost authority in regulation and credentialing of psychologists.
