Inactive Accredited Member

Guidelines for Inactive Members

  • This category is open to Accredited Members who have ceased practicing (in a paid or voluntary capacity) and are up to date with their annual membership fees.
  • Inactive Membership applications must be received before an applicant’s renewal of accreditation date and cannot be applied for if that renewal date has already been deferred.
  • The period of Inactive Membership is valid for a minimum of 6 months and a maximum of 24 months.
  • Members can request to return to Active Status at any time between 6 and 24 months of their period of inactivity.
  • At the end of the 24 months an Inactive Member must apply in writing to the IACP to have their status changed to Active.
  • Inactive Members are not required to undergo monthly supervision or engage in CPD activities for the period of their Inactive membership.
  • Applications made for an additional period of Inactive Membership after the initial 24 months may be granted at the discretion of the Accreditation Committee.
  • Inactive Members will not be listed on the IACP Online Directory.
  • Subject to criteria being met, the processing time for an application is approximately 2 weeks.
  • Please note:  
  • The cost for inactive membership for accredited members is €105.00 per annum. The cost for inactive membership for accredited supervisors is €42.00 per annum. In the case that a member wishes to go inactive for a period less than 12 months, the cost will be calculated on a pro rata basis. An invoice will be issued to the member with the pro rata amount OR a refund/ credit issued where the annual membership fee has been previously paid.

To return to Active Accredited status Inactive Members must:

  • Set up a contract with an Accredited Supervisor in line with current Supervision criteria and attend at least one session with this supervisor before applying
  • Make an application in writing to the IACP which must be accompanied by written confirmation from your supervisor that a contract is in place
  • Provide a copy of current Professional Liability Insurance
  • Subject to criteria being met, the processing time for an application is approximately 2 weeks
