Update as of September 3, 2021: Updated IBCLC Registry Now Available

IBLCE’s Public Registry has been updated to include certification updates from the April/May 2021 IBCLC examination administration and recertification by CERPs as of August 1, 2021.

For IBCLCs who need to verify their certification with their employer or other stakeholders seeking to verify those who are IBCLCs, we encourage you to use this resource. Providing one’s employer with the link and Credential Number (L-#) will allow them to verify your certification on their own. You can also print the page to submit.

Need help finding your credential number? Learn more about accessing your account in IBLCE’s online credential management system here.


As a reminder, here are the other certification verification methods currently available to you:

  • Log in to IBLCE’s online credential management system and view/print your certification status in the “My Credentials” tab. Learn more here.
  • Submit a certification verification form on behalf of your employer or whomever needs verification of your certification.
  • Contact your IBLCE location for a letter verifying certified status that can be provided to third parties.

As recently announced, IBLCE is working to mail certificates and ID cards to new and recertifying IBCLCs from 2020 on an incremental basis. Certificates for April/May 2021 IBCLC examination candidates will follow.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact the IBLCE regional location that serves you.
