The GCRB has an annual assessment process for new applicants wishing to join the GCRB Register. To apply for registration applicants should submit a “Notification of Intention to Register” form with the appropriate documentation and fee between 1st February and 8th February (inclusive) each year. 

Full details regarding eligibility to register and the registration process can be found in the documents below. We recommend reading the Applicant Guidelines and CPD guidelines thoroughly.

If a prospective registrant is unsure about their eligibility to register, the GCRB will consider individual cases on submission of a completed Evaluation of Eligibility to Register Form and administration fee.

If you have any questions about the Registration process please seek advice from the GCRB administrator, BEFORE submitting your 'Notification of Intention to Register' form.

Currently the GCRB is only able to assess a set number of portfolios each year. All Notifications of Intention to Register will be managed on a “first come, first served” basis. Acceptance will be made in order of receipt of the electronic Notification of Intention to Register form. If it is not possible to accept all applicants in a particular year, those applicants not accepted will be offered priority for the following year.

If, due to extenuating circumstances, an applicant is unable to submit their portfolio on time they should submit an Extenuating Circumstances Form as soon as possible.
