ICRI is the accrediting body for the profession in Ireland.

What is Accreditation?

Accreditation is a professional qualification for Conservator-Restorers. Achieving accreditation demonstrates a high degree of competence, sound judgement and an in-depth knowledge of the principles which underpin conservation practice.Our Accreditation framework has three components:

  • An assessment process for accrediting professional capability against explicit standards
  • A system for ensuring maintenance and enhancement of professional capability through Continuing Professional Development
  • A means of removing Accredited status from practitioners who fail to maintain a minimum standard of practice and ethics

The accreditation process is confidential. Our accredited members may use the letters A-ICRI after their name.
