Accreditation through IPEd lasts five years, after which accredited editors (AEs) must apply to have their accreditation renewed.

The next renewal round will be for editors who passed the exam in 2009 and in 2014. Renewal applications for both cohorts will open on Wednesday 15 May 2019, and close on Thursday 15 August 2019. More information will be provided closer to the time.

To renew your accreditation, you will need to show that you have:

  • been actively involved in the editing profession, and
  • undertaken appropriate professional development activities to maintain and extend your editing skills.

There is no exam for renewal of accreditation. Instead, you provide relevant details of your professional activities in your application form.

If you intend to apply for renewal of accreditation this year, please read the Guidelines for renewal before completing the application form. All those expected to renew this year will be sent the renewal form via email.

The application fee for renewal of accreditation is $200 for IPEd members, and $250 for non-members. The fee must be paid when you submit your application. Payment methods are set out in the Guidelines.

If you have questions about renewal of accreditation that are not covered in the Guidelines, please email your query to corporateservices@iped-editors.org.

IPEd has established the Editors Directory. Clients can search the directory for freelance editors using specific criteria. These will identify editors that have specific interests, skills or experience in certain areas.
