People who were previously certified may want to pursue reactivation.
When a former Diplomate is reactivated, ABIH will issue a new certificate, certification letter and will publish the person’s name on the public portion of the ABIH web site.
The Diplomate's previous certification number will be reassigned only if the reactivation request is approved before the expiration date of the most recently issued (but now invalid) ABIH certificate. The paper certifiate expiration date is five months after the end of the previous CM cycle.
|If you decertified||And you want to reactivate||You may do so by|
|For any reason except an ethics sanction||At any time||Examination* if you:

* Since the Aspects and CAIH examinations have been discontinued, reactivation by exam is not available. These Diplomates must qualify to take the Comprehensive Practice examination by providing a Re-application form, Supervisor's PRQ covering the last 2 years, and pay the fees (re-application fee and the examination) in effect at the time of the request.
