Any incomplete application form will not be processed and the IDRRMI will return the incomplete application form to the organizer if possible. The IDRRMI shall endeavor to respond to an application within 21 working days to facilitate the organizer in advertising the event in a timely manner.
Upon the notification of approval, the organizer may use the wordings “N CPD points approved by IDRRMI” where [N] denotes of the number of CPD points so approved. Post-registration will not be acceded, i.e. it is not possible to register CPD points after any event has taken place.
Guidelines on the awarding of CPD Points
The number of CPD points will normally be equivalent to the number of hours of the activity (excluding coffee/tea/lunch/dinner breaks etc). IDRRMI reserves the rights of final decision.
Registration of Attendance

The completed Attendance documents are to be submitted to the Secretariat of IDRRMI within 14 days after the event.

If the event is fee charging, an administrative charge will be levied by IDRRMI. The prescribed registration fee is currently fixed at HK$500 per event for non-commercial organizers and HK$1,000 per event for commercial organizers.
