States & Commissioners

The Interstate Commission for EMS Personnel Practice serves as the governing body responsible for overseeing the operations of the EMS Compact, ensuring the enforcement of its provisions among member states, and facilitating the resolution of disputes that may arise between these states. The Commission is comprised of one designated representative, referred to as the Commissioner, appointed by each member state's Governor or their delegate. This Commission operates as an instrumental entity of the Compact states, actively involved in shaping public policies on behalf of its member states.

The establishment of the Interstate Commission for EMS Personnel Practice (ICEMSPP) is mandated by Section 10 B.1 of the Recognition of EMS Personnel Licensure Interstate Compact (REPLICA) legislation.

Commissioner Appointments

Upon the passage of the Model EMS Compact legislation within a state and its subsequent signing into law by the state's governor, a Commissioner is appointed to represent that state on the Interstate Commission for EMS Personnel Practice. Generally, the Commissioner is the senior executive branch official overseeing EMS affairs within the state, holding titles such as State EMS Director, Branch Chief, or Bureau Chief. In states where multiple executive branch entities are responsible for licensing EMS personnel, the governor designates one executive to represent the state at the Commission. Each member state is granted one seat on the Commission, entitling them to a single vote on all matters presented before the body.

In alignment with the Commission's Bylaws, its activities encompass:

  1. The formulation of binding rules and operating procedures.
  2. The enforcement of Commission Rules, Operating Procedures, and Bylaws.
  3. The provision of dispute resolution services.
  4. The sharing of licensure history of EMS personnel among Member States and the coordination of significant investigatory information.
