What is the OT Compact Commission?
The Occupational Therapy Compact Commission (OTCC) is the interstate administrative body created by the Compact. The OTCC is composed of one Commissioner from each of the Compact states, along with non-voting representatives from AOTA and NBCOT. The OTCC is tasked with implementing the Compact’s provisions for interstate practice of occupational therapy.
When will the Compact be operational?
The OT Compact Commission will convene for the first time in August 2022. The Commission will adopt initial bylaws and rules to carry out the Compact. The Commission will also provide for the creation of an interstate licensure data system allowing for rapid verification of practitioners’ good standing and sharing of disciplinary information among member states.
This activation process generally takes up to a year or longer.
