Construction claims have become an integral part of the international construction industry and the Institute of Construction Claims Practitioners (ICCP) was created to recognise the fact that to be able to deal with claims in a professional manner, requires a significant amount of experience and expertise.

Many professionals with backgrounds in engineering, quantity surveying, project management and other professions within the industry have gained sufficient knowledge and experience to manage, prepare or respond to claims. Many have also become specialists within this sub-profession of the industry to an extent that they are employed as specialist claims consultants. Such people deserve recognition within the industry and the institute awards membership at Associate, Member and Fellow levels based on qualifications, expertise and experience.

Others within the industry have aspirations to learn the skills that a professional claims practitioner possesses, perhaps to advance their career or to gain an additional skill set. The institute is here to help them reach such goals.

The ICCP is an international organisation and is accessible to appropriately qualified and experienced claims practitioners on a worldwide basis.

The objectives of the ICCP are:

  • To establish international professional standards for the management of claims
  • To give recognition to those who have gained appropriate knowledge and experience in the management of claims
  • To help and educate those who wish to gain experience in the management of claims

The Institute of Construction Claims Practitioners is registered as a Private Limited Company in the Isle of Man.

As the institute grows in numbers a committee will be appointed to help create policy and steer the institute in the direction that most benefits its members. Our target is to have the committee appointed within 12 months of the launch of the institute.
