Since 2011, members self-certify their CPD compliance. Generally, all those applying for a practising certificate should declare their compliance on the practising certificate application form issued at renewal or on request. Members who have failed to comply or who seek exemption should supply details of their non-compliance or exempt status in the additional information box on the form.
