Public Registry

Use the search feature below to verify an individual is certified as an IBCLC.

You are able to search by Certification L-Number, given name and family name. It is best to search with as much specific information as you are able.

You may also confirm that an individual is certified with the most up-to-date information by executing the Certification Verification Form using Certification L-Number and forward to the appropriate IBLCE location.

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. Please note that if a current IBCLC does not pass the April exam then their expiration date is June 30 of that year.

*The Public Registry was last updated in January 31, 2020. To verify certifications or recertifications made after this date, please submit the Certification Verification Form provided above. IBLCE is working on updating the Public Registry and will provide more information by December 2020.
