Use the search feature below to verify an individual is certified by IBLCE. Those certified before 2013 will have both a new Certification Number and their original Certification Number/IBCLC ID Number. Those certified after 2013 will only have a Certification Number.
To verify whether an individual is certified by IBLCE, if you do not possess the new certification number (indicated by L-_____), you may still verify by original Certification Number/IBCLC ID Number. Or, if you prefer, to confirm that an individual is certified with the most up-to-date information, please execute the Certification Verification Form posted on the website using either the previous or current number and forward to the appropriate IBLCE office. IBLCE can verify by either number.
In 2016, IBLCE began offering the IBCLC exam twice-a-year. Due to the transition, the IBCLC expiration date was changed from October 31 to December 31 of the year of expiration. IBLCE updates the online registry two times a year, in January and July. Please note that if a current IBCLC does not pass the April exam then their expiration date is June 30 of that year.
*Registry updated 29 July 2016.
