What is the Institute of Construction Claims Practitioners?
The Institute of Construction Claims Practitioners (ICCP) is an international organisation that provides recognition to those who have gained experience and qualifications in the claims sector of the construction industry. The institute also exists to help those who wish to learn more about construction claims and provides both information on the subject of claims and an opportunity to share information on the subject with other members.
What are the objectives of the Institute of Construction Claims Practitioners?
The objectives of the ICCP are: to establish international professional standards for the management of claims, to give recognition to those who have gained appropriate knowledge and experience in the management of claims and to help and educate those who wish to gain experience in the management of claims.
What is the organisational structure of the Institute of Construction Claims Practitioners?
The ICCP is registered as a private limited company in the Isle of Man. As the institute grows in numbers, a committee will be appointed to help create policy and steer the institute in the direction that most benefits its members. Our target is to have the committee appointed within 12 months of the launch of the institute.

What is the membership criteria?
The membership criteria varies and is dependent on the level of membership you choose to apply for. Please visit our Membership page for full details.
Will I have to sit exams to gain membership?
No. The ICCP recognises that most construction claims practitioners gain their knowledge through hands-on experience. Membership is therefore awarded based on a combination of existing qualifications and demonstrable experience within the construction claims industry. Learn more about Membership.
Will membership entitle me to use letters after my name?
Industry protocol allows members of professional institutions to use an appropriate designation. Registered ICCP members may use AICCP (Associate), MICCP (Member) or FICCP (Fellow).

Application is quite simple. For full details on how to apply, please visit our How To Apply page under Membership.
How much does membership cost?
Our pricing structure is simple. For full details on membership fees, please visit our Membership Fees page under Membership. We would also like to note here that whilst there is some difference between Associate and Member fees, unlike other professional institutes, there is no difference between Member and Fellow fees. Rather than charge Fellows more to join, we opt to encourage Fellows to become involved in the institute in some capacity by serving on the ICCP Committee, contributing to the ICCP e-magazine, submitting articles to the Knowledge Centre or presenting at ICCP conferences and / or seminars. We believe that such an approach encourages involvement from those viewed as experts within the industry and supports the idea of knowledge sharing.
