Hello everyone and Happy Festive Season.

I have applied for membership by exemption 3months ago and still nothing. 

I think about halfway through this waiting time I did call ICB to check if they have received all the documents and to check if they would need anything else to support my application. I was assured that they have got my application and it should not take long now. Well still waiting and now it's a festive season, so will have to wait till New Year. But can it take much longer than 3months?

Well from my experience:

- Jan 2020 applied and paid fee;

- April 2020 recieved email to say application under review, then no further information/contact.


Ended up becoming member of IAB via exemption instead.


Best of luck with ICB.

No way AdrianM. Was the fees returned to you? Have you tried calling ICB?

Fees are non-refundable as far as I know.  Especially if you decide to pull out of application process.

In my experience is the best calling. I had no luck when emailing as well.
