If you hold registration from one of our member organisations listed below, you can check to see what levels you can gain portability to another ICREPs member register, along with any conditions that are imposed when porting.
The following applies to all portability queries:
- Not all registration levels are equivalent or portable even if they use the same name in different countries.
- As each country uses its own standards and registration categories, some ICREPs members (countries) may not be portable with other ICREPs members (countries).
- If the table below indicates that a particular registration is portable, this means that you are able to use your registration in one country to prove eligibility in the other, it DOES NOT register you to work there, you still need to apply and complete any local requirements as noted in the search results below.
- Individuals moving between countries will still need to meet any immigration/work visa requirements of any country they wish to work in.
- ICREPs and its members are unable to give immigration or visa advice, please refer to an immigration specialist.
- Portability is based on a current registration, not qualification. i.e you need to be currently registered in the country you gained your qualification before being eligible for portability to another country. Alternatively some countries may offer a Portability letter, this says you meet the full requirements to register there, but have not registered.

IMPORTANT: This table is a guide only
- All due care has been taken to produce this table, but due to ever-changing standards in countries, it may not be accurate in all cases/circumstances. We recommend before making any major decisions to ensure that (1) you are registered in the country you presently operate in and (2) you contact the country you are thinking of moving to and verify the exact process of portability with them directly.
- If a member register you are trying to port to advises you of something that conflicts with information in this table, then their decision/information takes precedence.
- ICREPs does not register individuals, nor does it offer any services to exercise professionals (including personalised advice on portability). All queries should be directed to ICREPs members directly (logos at the bottom of the page contain links to the register). Individuals who contact ICREPs will be referred here.
Update July 2020: REPs UK (a member of ICREPs) has recently merged with CIMSPA (not a member of ICREPs). We are presently in discussions with CIMSPA about portability options for those coming to/from the UK. In the meantime, please contact your local register for more information.
