Interstate Compact on the Placement of Children

A legal and administrative means to permit child placement activities to be pursued throughout the coun­try in much the same way, and with the same safeguards and services, as though they were being conducted in a single state. The compact requires notice and proof of the suitability of a placement before it is made; allocates specific legal and administrative respon­sibilities during the continuance of an interstate place­ment; provides a basis for enforcement of rights; and authorizes joint actions in all party states to improve operations and services. All U.S. jurisdictions and Canadian provinces are eligible. Consent of Congress is not required until a Canadian province seeks joinder.
