We posted on 5 April and 11 April about revised Rule 28 IPREE and the accompanying new registration procedure for the EQE. epi has today published a helpful article explaining about the rule change and the new registration procedure.
As noted in the article and our previous post, registration is not necessary for those who will be eligible to sit the 2017 pre-examination. Those candidates should enrol as normal by the deadline of 2 June 2016.
Registration will be necessary for those who will only be eligible to sit the pre-examination for the first time in 2018. During the transitional period (expected to expire no earlier than 31 March 2017), registration will be free. Thereafter, candidates will have to pay a registration fee (reduced for candidates who are epi student members at the time of registering for the EQE). During the transitional period, candidates can also apply to have any length of prior training recognised for the purposes of Article 11(2) REE.
