Senate Passes Intercountry Adoption Universal Accreditation Act of 2012

On 12/5/12 Senate Bill 3331 was passed to provide for universal intercountry adoption accreditation standards.

S.3331 extends the terms of the Intercountry Adoption Act of 2000 to all adoption service providers offering or providing adoption services regardless of whether the child’s country of origin is a signatory to the Hague Convention on Intercountry Adoption. The House version of the bill (H.R. 6027) now goes to the House. 

On November 26, 2012, COA participated in a conversation on Intercountry Adoption held by Ambassador Susan Jacobs. Click here to access the video.
