At some point in 2016 you will be contacted by email by a member of IACP staff with detailed instructions on how to renew your accreditation. You can download a sample of the application form which is available on this page to see what exact information you will be requested to provide for the renewal of your IACP accreditation.
All Accredited Members and Supervisors will be asked to renew their accreditation at the same time.
The processing fee for the renewal of IACP accreditation is €20 per year and €30 for an Accredited Supervisor. Any processing fee that has already been paid in recent years will be credited to future processing fees as appropriate.
If you are an Accredited Supervisor:
There is only one form to be completed for both categories of membership (Accredited Member and Accredited Supervisor). For future re-accreditation, your accreditation as an Accredited Member and an Accredited Supervisor will be renewed at the same time.
Continuing Accreditation depends on a renewal application being received by IACP on or before the renewal date and is subject to current and valid Garda Vetting.
Payment of the application processing fee is required prior to receiving the application form. If you have paid your application fee in recent years and you have credit with IACP- the forms will be sent out to you by a member of the IACP staff when your accreditation renewal is due.
Once an application is received, an email receipt is sent to the Member. Please make sure that your email address is correct on your application and that it is an address that you check regularly.
Fully completed applications are assessed by the Accreditation Department and the Accreditation Committee, if necessary.
Once approved all applications are screened by the Complaints Committee.
When approved- a confirmation email and a PDF version of Certificate of Accreditation will be sent to you.
Please note: As of January 2016 a hard copy of certificate of accreditation will be issued only on request.
An Accredited Members status continues to be valid while an application for renewal of accreditation is being processed.
Only fully completed, applications will be processed. Incomplete applications will be rejected.
Applications can only be accepted at a maximum of 3 months prior to the Renewal of Accreditaiton due date. Any applications received more than 3 months before this date will be returned.
If an application is unsuccessful a letter of notification will be sent to the applicant and their membership will be lapsed.
Application Processing Times
If there are no queries on the application this process will take approximately 3 months or less.
If there is a query on the application, you will be notified by email and the application will be reviewed by the Accreditation Committee. If this happens then it may take longer than 3 months to process.
If an application is not complete or additional information is required then the processing time may be longer.
At certain times of the year or if the volume of applications is high it may take longer for your application to be processed.
