Renewal of accreditation

Accreditation is valid for five years, after which accredited editors need to apply for renewal.

Renewal of accreditation requires accredited editors to provide details of their continuing involvement in the editing profession and participation in professional development activities. Application is made by completing a detailed application form and submitting the required fee by the due date.

Renewal for editors accredited in 2011

If you’re one of the editors who became accredited in 2011, your application for renewal of accreditation is due by 31 August 2016.

You will need to demonstrate that you have been actively involved in the editing profession and undertaken appropriate professional development activities over the past five years.

For full details, refer to Renewal of accreditation on IPEd’s website.

You should have received email reminders from the Accreditation Board. If you haven’t, it means IPEd doesn’t have your correct contact details. To update your contact details with IPEd, send an email to
