The Public Protection Database (PPD) is designed to provide an important front line in the protection of the public. The PPD flagging system provides disciplinary information to member boards to assist them in making licensure decisions. The system is designed to prevent a social worker who has been disciplined in one location from withholding such adverse action from the new licensing jurisdiction.
Once a question is raised through a PPD identification, member boards are encouraged to contact the reporting board for the details of any disciplinary action. The information can be used in determining a candidate’s eligibility for licensure.
