If the committee accepts and validates the application, the new member receives an ICOM card with an identification number.
The member must also pay a membership fee every year. He then receives a sticker with the indication of the current year, which he sticks on his card forvalidate it.

Information on how to become a member, on the ICOM website:

Another possibility to choose or change the International Committee: the IRIS database.

By becoming a member of ICOM, you will receive an email indicating your username, and a link allowing you to create your password.

Username and password give you access to your ICOM account. You will also be able to connect to IRIS, the database of ICOM members.

Each member can thus access their individual file to check it and update, at a minimum, your email address and your international committee.

Some members can modify several other kinds of data.

Some information can only be modified by the National Committee and the ICOM Member Service.

When inaccurate information cannot be directly edited, members are invited to contact their National Committee directly.

Consult this directory of National Committees:

It is recommended to do this check once a year, after having renewed your annual membership fee.

If you have a problem connecting with your National Committee, contact the ICOM Membership Service directly <>.

How to access your individual file

First, go to the IRIS base <>

  1. In the identification form, type your username, then your password to log in.
