The written notice of the decision regarding the placement is the ICPC Form 100A, Interstate Compact Placement Request, section IV. No assessment or report is valid without the ICPC 100A, Interstate Compact Placement Request. Neither the assessment nor report is submitted directly to the Receiving State ICPC Administrator or to the local sending state agent by any means or mode without express permission of the TN ICPC office.
Processing for a Parental study under the ICPC will be in accordance to Section II A-G “Children Who are From another State Placed Into TN."
