Welcome to the website of the International Standards Board for Qualified Patent Information Professionals (ISBQPIP).

Dear Applicant for Prior Experience Recognition (PER),

The PER application form can be accessed under the link "Prior Experience Recognition" at www.qpip.org. If you are a resident of Europe or the United States and you intend to apply for PER status, please complete the application form and submit it by email to PER@qpip.org before 11:59 pm on Monday 11 March 2019. The document contains instructions on what information needs to be provided and examples on the content of the boxes. Alongside it, there are two more documents with examples of what your required CV and employment letter could look like. These are just examples intended to give you an idea of what your submission could look like. You are welcome to copy from them. If you have already prepared an employment letter and CV, you can submit the documents as they are.

The PER application form also includes instructions of how to pay the application fee of €175. For the moment only a bank transfer is possible, but we will soon provide other means of payment (such as web cash transfer system). Please check www.qpip.org/per for details as they become available concerning alternate methods of payment. The Qualifications and Continued Professional Development Committee of the ISBQPIP, which is responsible for the processing of your application, will confirm the receipt of your application and payment of the application fee in your name as soon as possible. Please allow a few days for the confirmation.
