Registration Criteria

If you are located in one of the GCC countries, please contact the congress secretariat.

FIP member

In order to qualify for the reduced congress registration fee for FIP members, you must:

  • have been a member for two consecutive years (2017 and 2018, both fees need to be paid), OR
  • have been a member for 2018 (fee needs to be paid) and have fully paid up your membership for 2019 before 31 January 2019, OR
  • become a member before 31 January 2019 and pay for two years in advance (2019 and 2020).

If one of these conditions is met, you will receive a special code for reduced fee registration after 31 January 2019.

Student/recent graduate

In order to qualify for the student/recent graduate fee, two conditions must be met:

(1) You must still be a student or have graduated from your last pharmacy study after September 2014.
(2) You must attach to your online registration an official document (.jpeg/.gif/.bmp/.png, max. 200Kb) proving your student/recent graduate status.

Unless the congress registration office has received satisfactory proof of your student status, the regular registration fee will apply.

Council delegate

 In order to qualify for the council delegate registration fee, you must attach to your online registration form proof (.jpeg/.gif/.bmp/.png, max. 200Kb) that you have been officially appointed to represent your organisation at the council meeting. Unless the congress registration office has received this proof, the regular registration fee will apply.

Registered council delegates will receive a supplement programme for member organisations as well as the council agenda six weeks before the council meeting.

Please note that only ONE council delegate can be appointed per organisation.


In order to qualify for press registration, you must have applied for and been granted an official invitation code from the FIP communications department via the “press and media” section of the congress website.

Insurance and liability disclaimer  

The FIP Organising Committee, the Local Host Committee, FIP Headquarters and MCI Amsterdam (hereafter called the organisers) may be not held responsible for any loss, injury or damage to any property, whatever the cause may be. Liability of persons and enterprises providing means of transportation or other services, however, remains unaffected. It is recommended that participants obtain adequate cover for travel, health and accident insurance before they depart from their countries. The organisers cannot accept responsibility for personal injuries, or loss of, or damage to, private property belonging to the congress participants. Should, for any reason outside the organisers’ control (including but not limited to acts of terrorism, extreme weather conditions and/or industrial action) the venue or speakers change, or the congress be cancelled, the organisers will endeavour to reschedule, but shall not be held responsible for any costs, damages or expenses incurred by registrants. If for any reason the organisers decide to make changes to the congress, they are not responsible for airfares, hotels or other costs incurred by registrants. The participants take part in the congress, tours and trips at their own risk. Furthermore, the organisers may not be held liable for any costs or damages incurred resulting from acts outside of their control including but not limited to force majeure, strikes and/or public manifestations.
Only written arrangements are binding. The sole legal venue is The Hague. Registration of a participant entails acceptance of these conditions.
In any disputes that may arise concerning the execution or interpretation of these regulations, both parties agree that they will be subject to Dutch law and that the commercial courts of The Hague will be competent, without prejudice to the organisers’ right to initiate proceedings under the laws and before the courts of the participant’s registered office in the event any sums are due by the participant to FIP.
