The BACB currently accepts certification applications from individuals regardless of their country of residence. Effective January 1, 2023, only individuals who reside in the US, Canada, Australia, and the United Kingdom* may apply for BACB certification.
BACB certificants who obtained their certification before January 1, 2023, may maintain their certification indefinitely as long as they meet recertification requirements.
The BACB’s original announcement from 2019, Recent Changes to the BACB’s International Focus, provides additional information about this change. Please refer to this webpage for updates about future certification availability in other countries.
