The National Racing Compact Committee created by the Interstate Compact on Licensure of Participants in Live Horse Racing with Pari-mutuel Wagering is known as the National Racing Compact.

The Compact was established in 2000 when the first five states joined. In October 2006, Maryland joined the National Racing Compact (Chapter 180, Acts of 2006).

Authorized by ratifying states and the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Compact is an independent, interstate agency that issues a national license to persons participating in horse racing where parimutuel betting takes place. Its license is recognized by the fifteen Compact member states: Arizona, California, Delaware, Florida, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Nebraska, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Oklahoma, Virginia, Washington, and West Virginia.

Through a central licensing office, the Compact establishes standards for licensure, receives applications and fingerprints, analyzes criminal history record information, and issues licenses for horse owners, trainers, jockeys, and drivers.

The Compact is made up of one member from the racing commission or its equivalent in each member state.
