Want your professional license to easily transfer state to state?

June 16, 2022

Government Affairs @ PBA

Want your professional beauty license to act like a driver's license that you can use in different states? The Cosmetology Compact is legislation that will ensure your license is valid within the participating member states. Read more on how this can help you transition from state to state!

 

What is the Cosmetology Compact?

The Cosmetology Compact is an interstate occupational licensure compact. Interstate compacts are constitutionally authorized, legislatively enacted, legally binding agreement among states. The Cosmetology Compact will enable licensed cosmetologists to practice in all states that join the compact, rather than getting an individual license in every state in which they want to practice. Like the compact for a driver's license, each compact member state agrees to mutually recognize the practitioner licenses issued by every other member state.

About The Cosmetology Compact

The Council of State Governments is partnering with the Department of Defense and a coalition of state boards of cosmetology to support the mobility of licensed cosmetologists through the development of a new interstate compact. This additional licensing pathway will create reciprocity among participant states and reduce the barriers to license portability and employment.
