CPD approval must be given by a recognised body in the relevant country.  If your activity takes place in Ireland, it must be approved by a recognised Irish Postgraduate Medical Training Body (PGMTB).


A CPD certificate of attendance issued by one Irish postgraduate medical training body will be automatically accepted by other training bodies as evidence of a doctor's participation in that activity.

You need only apply for CPD approval to one Irish training body.

Multi-Disciplinary events

Where an event is of interest to multiple disciplines, all Irish Postgraduate Medical Training Bodies have agreed to mutually recognise and accept the other PGMTB recognition. Therefore, where approval has been granted by one PGMTB, further approval from other PGMTB is not required.
