All candidates for IARFP Certification need to have a minimum number of years of qualified experience.
All candidates for IARFP Certification must agree to comply with the IARFP’s Code of Ethics and Professional Standards of Practice for R.F.P.s that sets forth their ethical responsibilities to the public, clients and employers.

IARFP also performs a background check during this process, and each candidate for IARFP certification must disclose any investigations or legal proceedings related to their professional or business conduct. This is enforced through the IARFP Disciplinary Rules and Procedures.
Annual Renewal Process
