The BACB offers multiple, publicly-available resources for verifying information about certificants.
Verification of Certification Status
The most readily-accessible way to verify an individual’s certification status is to search our online registries:
The online registries will include a “Date Accessed” statement on their search results for your convenience in verifying the information requested.
Verification of Disciplinary Actions
To verify whether a certificant is currently sanctioned, search our database of Disciplinary Actions. The page will include a “Date Accessed” statement on the search results for your convenience in verifying the information requested.

Requests for a Verification Letter
If a current certificant requires a letter or personalized email verifying current standing, the individual may request written verification of a current certificant’s status either as a PDF verification letter or completion of a state-issued verification form (hereafter referred to as a “verification letter”). The verification letter will be emailed to the requestor within 3-5 business days after the $25 fee (per letter) has been paid.
Original-source verification means that evidence of the individual’s degree or coursework must be provided directly from the institution or via an unopened envelope that is clearly from that institution. For non-US institutions, third-party verification sources may be utilized (e.g., equivalency organizations).
