Licensure by Reciprocity & Licensure by Act 41:

A person who is licensed in good  standing as an auctioneer, apprentice auctioneer or auction  company in another state may, on application to the board, be  granted licensure as an auctioneer, apprentice auctioneer or  auction company in this Commonwealth upon the payment by the  applicant of the proper application fee and the filing with  the board of a properly certified copy of the license issued  to the applicant by the applicant's current licensing state.

Act 41 allows for portability of out-of-state professional licensees coming to work in Pennsylvania. Act 41 does this by granting all boards and commissions within the Commonwealth the authority to endorse licensees from other states, territories or jurisdictions (with substantially equivalent licensing requirements) who are active, in good standing and without discipline against their license or criminal conviction.
