In order to be suitable for this membership offer you need to be a current valid Protecture Subscriber. If you are not, you can find details of our other memberships here. When you apply for this membership we will validate your details with Protecture before accepting your membership.

If you stop being a Protecture Subscriber either during or at the point of renewal for your IRMS membership this offer will not longer apply and we will contact you about what your options are for continuing your membership with us. 


Your membership is provided courtesy of Protecture. The invoice our website automatically generates is zero value which you can ignore. Once registered and then approved you will be able to access all of the above through your online account. To register please visit


The membership cycle is rolling from the date you register. So if you join in January 2019 for example you will need to renew in January 2020. We will contact you before then to ask if you wish to renew and advise how you can cancel the renewal should you wish to. We reconcile all memberships with us with Protecture therefore where any issues arise either Protecture or ourselves will be in touch to resolve them. 

If you wish to purchase a different type of membership (higher than affiliate) or want additional memberships please contact us as these will be outside of this offer and you may be charged directly for these.
