Interpretation of Rules

In each state, Compact Administrators and Deputy Compact Administrators are responsible for the administration and management of the state's supervision and transfer of juveniles subject to the terms of the Compact and the ICJ Rules.  Therefore, all inquiries related to ICJ Rules and policies should first be directed to a state's Compact Administrator and/or Deputy Compact Administrator. 

When a state requires interpretation of a rule, the state’s Compact Administrator or Commission may submit a request to the Executive Director using the form below. For more information, see ICJ Rule 9-101(3).
