EMS CompAct

The EMS Compact facilitates the day-to-day movement of EMS personnel across state boundaries in the performance of their duties. EMS personnel, including EMTs and Paramedics, licensed in a compact member state are granted a Privilege to Practice in the other compact member states. The EMS Compact is a legal agreement between states enacted by state legislation in over 20 states. A Member State is a state that has passed the Recognition of EMS Personnel Licensure Interstate CompAct (REPLICA) legislation.

The EMS Compact:

  • increases access to patient care
  • protects the public
  • reduces the administrative burden for EMS personnel and states
  • enhances the Emergency Medical Services system in the United States.

Please visit The EMS COMPACT website for more information.
