IRCA Regrade

As an existing IRCA member, you can regrade to a higher membership grade as your career advances.


You can apply to regrade at any time, to do so simply choose from the options below.
If you regrade at the end of your five-year certification period, then there is no regrade fee (see Recertification ). However, at other times a regrade fee will be charged.

The requirements for regrading can be found here

The table below shows your recertification options. Click the 'Regrade here' link to begin a Regrade application.

IRCA regrade options

How your regrade is processed

  • Step 1: Complete the online regrade process and submit your application and regrade fee
  • Step 2: Your application will go through a two-stage assessment by a Membership Advisor and Technical Reviewing Officer. A Membership Advisor will contact you if we require any further information to support your application
  • Step 3: Once we are satisfied that you meet the relevant grade criteria, we will issue a certification offer to you by email and your record will be updated. You will not need to take any further action.

If you have any questions about regrading, please contact the IRCA Member Journey Team at auditors@quality.org or call us on +44 (0)20 7245 6866.
