§ 1023.34. Reciprocity.

 (a)  If the Department, upon review of the criteria for certification or equivalent authorization of a type of EMS provider in another state determines that the criteria is substantially equivalent to the criteria for a type of EMS provider certification it issues, the Department may enter into a reciprocity agreement with its counterpart agency in the other state to certify the same type of provider in this Commonwealth based solely upon the other state’s certification of the EMS provider, provided:

   (1)  The agreement provides that the counterpart authority in the other state will accord the equivalent EMS provider certified by the Department the same treatment in the other state.

   (2)  The agreement does not deprive the Department of its authority to deny a certification based upon disciplinary considerations.

 (b)  The Department will publish in the Pennsylvania Bulletin, and update as appropriate, a notice listing the states with which it has entered into a reciprocity agreement and, for each state, the type of EMS provider covered by the reciprocity agreement.
