The Irish Society of Chartered Physiotherapists (ISCP) is no longer the designated authority acting with the approval of the Minister for Health for the recognition of physiotherapy qualifications in the Republic of Ireland (S.I.139/2008). Applications for Qualification Recognition from 30th September 2016 should now be made to CORU (www.coru.ie). The Qualification Recognition process is guided by EU Directive 2013/55/EC amending the 2005/36/EC.
Once applicants are successful in their review applicant are then sent letters to notify them that they are eligible for membership with the ISCP.
In this letter applicants are given steps to allow them to join on line as a practising or non practising member.
There is currently no timeframe in which applicants must join the Society.
It is recommended that applicants keep their letter of approval as copies will not be available after files are sent to storage.
