Registration Portability Guide

If you are an exercise professional registered by an ICREPs member, you may use the Registration Portability Guide below to help determine the portability of your registration to another ICREPs member register. 

  • All due care has been taken to produce the Registration Portability Guide, but due to ever-changing standards in countries, it may not be accurate in all cases/circumstances. 
We strongly recommend that you always verify information with your country of origin and destination country before making any decisions based on the Registration Portability Guide.

Important Information for Exercise Professionals

  • The Registration Portability Guide is a GUIDE only. If an ICREPs member register provides you with information that conflicts with information in the Registration Portability Guide, then the information from the ICREPs member takes precedence.
  • Prior to making any major decisions based on the Registration Portability Guide, we strongly recommend
  • (1) Verifying registration in your current country; and 
  • (2) Contacting the register in your destination country to verify portability and any related conditions 
  • ICREPs does not register individuals, nor does it offer any services to exercise professionals (including personalised advice on portability). All queries regarding registration should be directed to ICREPs member organisations.
  • Portability is based on a current registration, not qualification. You must be currently registered by an ICREPs member to be eligible for portability to another ICREPs member register. Alternatively, some registers may offer a Portability letter, which states that an exercise professional is not registered, but meets the full registration requirements. 
Not all registration levels are equivalent or portable, even if they use the same name in different countries.
  • Portability does NOT mean that you are registered to work in the destination country. You still need to apply and complete any local work requirements.
  • 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.
