After you gain access to the Manual of Practice, you can view the document in a web browser and save the file to the web browser for offline usage. IIBEC has implemented new protection measures on our manuals which restrict printing and sharing. These measures were put in place to protect the intellectual property (IP) that goes into creating the manual as we have a team who spends a tremendous number of hours researching, writing, editing, creating the charts, graphs and designing the manual. While we want to ensure you get access to the content you have purchased, we also need to protect the integrity of our business and want to ensure the manual does not get shared, printed or widely distributed to those who have not paid for it, or have not signed on as a member of our organization. For this reason, we have restricted printing of the manual and limited your use to accessing the content on 3 devices. We appreciate your understanding in this.

When purchasing the Manual of Practice, you are purchasing one license

If you need access on more than 3 devices, would like to purchase multiple licenses, or for print options, please contact IIBEC,
