The bill enacts the Social Work Licensure Compact (compact).
The compact is designed to:
  • Eliminate the necessity for social workers to obtain licenses
from multiple states by providing for the mutual
recognition of licenses from other states that have signed
the compact (member states);
  • Facilitate the exchange of licensure and disciplinary
information among member states;
  • Authorize member states to hold a regulated social worker
accountable for abiding by a member state's laws,
regulations, and applicable professional standards in the
member state in which the client is located at the time care
is rendered; and
  • Allow for the use of telehealth to facilitate increased access
to regulated social work services.
The bill authorizes the state board of social work examiners
(board) to promulgate rules and to facilitate Colorado's participation in
the compact, including notifying the Compact Commission (commission)
established by the compact of any adverse action taken by the board
against a Colorado regulated social worker. The commission includes a
delegate from each member state and has the powers and duties set forth
in the bill.
The compact becomes effective on the date the compact is enacted
in the seventh member state.
