Maintaining accreditation

Accredited individual members promise to keep up to date with all the latest legal developments to help deal with their cases successfully. They commit to 16 hours of APIL accredited training a year, APIL accredited specialists must accrue 50% of their training hours in each specialist field. Each member’s training log is rigorously vetted, along with the quality of the training to ensure that it meets APIL’s standards.

Accredited members must confirm they continue to meet the accreditation standards every five years.

If individuals and firms do not comply with the above, they lose their accreditation.
