Reciprocity

Reciprocity into Pennsylvania

Addiction professionals certified by an IC&RC member board who relocate to Pennsylvania may transfer their credential to PCB using the reciprocity process. No additional requirements will have to be met by the certified professional using this process to transfer their credential to Pennsylvania. To begin the reciprocity process, certified addiction professionals must contact their current credentialing board and request a reciprocity application. Upon completion of the reciprocity application by both the certified addiction professional and the current credentialing board and upon receipt of this information by PCB, PCB will then issue the certified addiction professional the equivalent credential offered by PCB.

 

Reciprocity out of Pennsylvania

Addiction professionals certified by PCB who relocate to another state, country, or nation may transfer their credential to the new jurisdiction using the reciprocity process only if the new jurisdiction is an IC&RC member board. Reciprocity to a non-IC&RC member board is not permitted. Additional requirements may be imposed upon the certified addiction professional depending on the laws and regulations governing the practice of addiction related services in the new jurisdiction. Therefore, certified addiction professionals are strongly encouraged to contact the IC&RC member board in the new jurisdiction to determine if any additional requirements must be met. To begin the reciprocity process, certified addiction professionals must contact PCB at info@pacertboard.org and request a reciprocity application. Upon completion of the reciprocity application by both the certified addiction professional and PCB and upon receipt of this information by the certification board in the new jurisdiction, that board will then issue the certified addiction professional the equivalent credential offered unless laws or regulations governing the practice of addiction related services in the new jurisdiction must first be met.
