Update as of July 8, 2022: Final 2021 Certificate Update

The mailing of September 2021 IBCLC examination and recertification by CERPs certificates is now complete. Over 6,000 certificates have been sent by post and are on the way to IBCLCs around the world!

Please note that these certificates are being mailed worldwide and delivery time may vary. In past years, some certificates have taken more than six weeks to arrive, even without potential delays due to the pandemic. Thank you for your patience – the certificates are coming!

As noted in previous updates, IBLCE is still dealing with the impacts of COVID-19 as well as supply chain issues, which have necessitated changes to the certificate mailing procedure and led to an extended timeline for sending certificates. Now that the final 2021 IBCLC certificates are in the post, we will be turning our attention to certificates from the March/April 2022 IBCLC examination. We will continue to post updates about the status of these certificates on the IBLCE COVID-19 Resource Centre. Candidates who passed the March/April 2022 examination can find other methods of verifying their certification or recertification here.

We understand that certificates are important to you as an IBCLC, and IBLCE is working diligently to provide them in recognition of your achievement as soon as is feasible in this time of disruption.
