At the NAPCP AGM held in December 2020, it was announced that the NAPCP was looking to change the Renewal of Accreditation Time Period from 5 years.
It has been agreed by the board of the NAPCP that from June 1st, 2021 onwards, all new applications for accreditation will have a valid date of three years as opposed to the previous five.
What does this mean for you?
I have just been granted accreditation and my certificate says 5 years, does this still stand?
Yes. If you have already been granted a valid date of five years, this still stands and will not be altered.
I am currently accredited and due to renew my accreditation in June, what will happen?
Please submit your application as normal. It will be assessed and, if successful, you will be granted Accreditation for a three year period.
I will be applying for Accreditation for the first time after June, what will happen?
If your application is successful, you will be granted Accreditation for a three year period.
Will the same processing fee apply?
No. After June 1st, the processing fee will be altered to the following:
Renewal of Accreditation procesing fee: €60
First time Accreditation processing fee: €100
