On March 18th, due to circumstances outside the control of the ICPEM, this website was taken offline, and the www.icpem.net address became unavailable.

We created a new set of web pages at
www.theicpem.net as an interim measure to ensure that we could maintain our public presence and contact with our members.

08/08/15 - UPDATE - The institute is still working on the development of an entirely new website, bringing the very best capabilities to our members and visitors.
While we have no information on a release date, we will keep this site up to date with information until the launch of a new site. We are grateful for the continued patience of members and visitors.

04/04/15 UPDATE - @icpem.net email addresses are no longer active due to the ongoing issues which we are still working hard to resolve. Please use the links shown under the 'Contacts' tab, which use an alternative system


27/3/15 UPDATE - www.icpem.net was reinstated, however, we will maintain the interim site at wwwtheicpem.net until this original site's availability is certain.

We apologise for any inconvenience that these issues may have caused, but they were entirely beyond the control of the institute.

ICPEM 2012-2016 Strategic Plan

All members are encouraged to read the Institute's Strategic Plan 2012-2016.

Strategic planning is the institute's process of defining its strategy, or direction, and making decisions on allocating its resources to pursue this strategy. 

In order to determine where we are going, the institute needs to know exactly where it stands, then determine where it wants to go and how it will get there. The resulting document is The Strategic Plan.

If you would like to contribute towards the achievement of any of the Strategic Objectives identified in Annex A and become part of the team appointed to achieve a particular objective, please either contact the Team Leader directly, or Tony Moore at tony.moore@icpem.net who will put you in touch with the Team Leader.

Members can download the Strategic Plan by logging in.
