Failure to meet the minimum annual Innovation Points Earned (IPEs) and Annual Maintenance Fee (AMF) requirements will result in suspension of your certification, which is the temporary loss of right of membership. Once the suspension is in effect, your "good standing" rights will be immediately revoked. Access to the Member Website will be restricted.
Suspension of certification can only be lifted when the minimum annual IPE and AMF requirements are met. From the date of suspension, you have a 90-day grace period to get your previously earned IPEs and AMFs up to date. Actions resulting in suspension in the last year of your certification cycle will result in decertification at the end of the 90 day grace period following your certification expiration date. IICIE will send you a notification by email to inform you that you have been decertified.
