I have gone through the re-registration, do I get a certificate?
You will not receive a new certificate by default. You can request this from the EMWO.
I have gone through the re-registration, will I still receive notice?
By default, you will not receive a message after going through the re-registration. Your certification (when all requirements are met) is automatically adjusted in the BROK register.Please note
, this may take a while.
How long is my BROK certification valid?
Your BROK certification is valid for three years. The certification commences on the date on which you have fulfilled all four conditions for obtaining the BROK certification and this has been acknowledged by the EMWO. If you want to receive a certificate and/or be included in the BROK register, this date will also be stated.
The BROK certification will expire after three years. It is important that you renew the BROK certification on time if you want to continue working in the field of medical scientific research. If you do not do this before your registration has expired, you will have to take and pass the entire course again. You will also have to redo exams. The only thing you will not have to do is attend a centre-specific meeting.
