Bridge Inspector/Senior Bridge Inspector Members

BICS Renewals Process

BICS Renewals

Once an Inspector or Senior Inspector are certified, their certification is automatically renewed annually (subject to receipt of the annual subscription). After 3 years there is a formal review and renewal process in place, as detailed below.

Inspectors are advised that recertification is dependent on evidence that they are maintaining inspection activity known as Frequency of Practice. In addition, they will maintain their appropriate training credentials and Continuing Professional Development (CPD). To evidence this, Inspectors and Senior Inspectors should continue to record all Frequency of Practice and CPD on their registered e-portfolio as a training record here. It is recommended that the Frequency of Practice log and CPD evidence is updated regularly.

The BICS process for membership renewal is as follows:


  1. A BICS membership annual fee will be invoiced to you at the end of February 2024.
