The International Confederation of Registers of Exercise Professionals (ICREPs) is an international partnership between registration bodies around the world that register exercise professionals.
ICREPs has three main functions:
ICREPs does not in itself operate a registration system – it supports countries to develop their own systems based on the unique needs of that country.
ICREPs, like its members, is non-profit. It charges an annual fee to its members to cover its operating costs which varies depending on the size of the register. For more details on membership, see our joining page.
ICREPs is set up as a non-profit incorporated society, with a board and chair elected by its members.
Catherine Hanson Farid (REPs UAE) – Chair
Katherine Mackeigan (NFLA, Canada) – Deputy Chair
Chris Alexander (AUSactive, Australia) – Secretary
Stephen Gacsal (REPs New Zealand) – Treasurer
Brian Biagioli (REPs USA)
Amjad Kahn (REPs India)
Mahdi Jafargholizadeh (REPs Iran)
Yusuf Ziya Üzüm (REPs Turkey)
If ICREPs has a member National Register in your country, register directly with them.
Simply follow the links at the bottom of this page (click on the logo of your country’s registry) for more information.
Exercise professionals may also be interested in the ICREPs Global Portability Matrix, showing how ICREPs members registration levels are internationally portable.
In all cases, direct questions about this to your local ICREPs member.
Consider joining ICREPs – To do so you must either meet all of ICREPs criteria for membership (as outlined on our joining page) or be working towards it.
One of the essential components is that a register must be independent from training providers (i.e. registers can not be in the business of providing training/education).
