2017 Program Status Report Now Available for Download

The 2017 Program Status Report is now available for download. The 2017 report builds on the CLP Registry Book, first published in 2013. The 2017 report includes a CLP program overview, leadership information, committee and marketing highlights for the year, certificant bios, and valuable data about the CLP community that now encompasses more than 800 individuals from the United States and approximately 30 other countries across the globe.

The goal of this publication is to serve as a resource to both the community of CLP‐certified professionals as well the licensing and technology transfer profession as a whole.

Has Your Credential Expired?

Did your CLP credential expire within the previous year? If so, you may still renew the credential without sitting for the CLP exam. CLP offers a one year grace period during which individuals may renew the credential by completing the CLP Recertification application and paying the recertification fee in addition to a late fee. You do not need to notify CLP of your intent to take advantage of the grace period. Simply login to your account and complete the application, but don't wait - the grace period ends exactly one year following the original expiration date.

CLP Emeritus Status Application Period Open

CLP, Inc. has begun accepting applications for the CLP Emeritus status – a designation that will recognize individuals who have earned and held the Certified Licensing Professional (CLP) credential, in good standing, but are now retired from full-time employment. The offering comes at the requests of, and in order to recognize, CLP certificants who have had successful careers in licensing/IP but are no longer able to maintain the credential due to their employment status. 

In order to apply, individuals must meet all eligibility requirements for the designation as outlined on the CLP web site and submit the corresponding application.
