Re-instatement of Provisional Accreditation

About Re-instatement

If your Accreditation (Provisional of Full) or Reaccreditation has lapsed, you may make an application for Re-instatement of Accreditation.

It is a two stage process and the second stage will differ depending on when your accreditation lapsed.

You must first apply for Provisional Re-instatement. 12 months after this award, members who had already achieved Full Accreditation before lapsing, should apply for Full Re-instatement.

Members whose accreditation lapsed during their provisional year, before they applied for Full Accreditation, should complete a Full Accreditation Application form a year after being granted their Provisional Re-instatement. They do not need to complete a Full Re-instatement application.

If neither Full Re-instatement or a Full Accreditation application is made 12 months after the Provisional Re-instatement is granted, your accreditation will lapse again. Please contact accreditation@babcp.com if you are not able to submit the relevant application in this timeframe.

On Provisional Re-instatement, you will reappear on the CBT Register UK - the date shown will be your Provisional Reinstatement date.
