Once the CPIP is conferred, recertification requirements must be met every three years to maintain a valid credential. The CPIP designation becomes invalid if there is failure to meet recertification requirements.
The purpose of the CPIP Recertification Requirements Program is to:
Each CPIP must satisfy the CPIP recertification requirements in order to maintain the CPIP credential. CPIPs are required to attain no less than 60 recertification points* (RCPs) during the three year credential validity period and agree to continue to adhere to the ISPE-PCC Code of Ethics and Professional Conduct.
TOTAL MINIMUM RCPs/THREE YEAR CYCLE REQUIRED = 60
Yearly Fee: US$75, €40
*See the CPIP Recertification Handbook for a description of Recertification Activities and Points.
Sam DeMarco, CPIP, President Compliance Team Inc, United States
"I believe that the credential has made me more confident and I feel that my clients engage me in more philosophical discussions on pharmaceutical industry subject matter. I get the sense that my clients 'listen' to me in a more serious 'in tune' way."
Marc Fleischman, CPIP, Facility and Verification Engineer, Genzyme, a Sanofi Company
"I chose to pursue the CPIP certification as a way to learn new phases of the industry and to codify my existing knowledge. As I prepared and studied for the exam, I was challenged to develop a broader understanding of many industry concepts that I had not been routinely exposed to. The experience has left me with a deep understanding of GMP regulation and broad industry knowledge across the entire bio/pharm lifecycle."
