The Voluntary Register of Clinical Technologists is jointly supported by IPEM, IIE and ART and as such stands alone as an semi-autonomous entity. Although the Voluntary Register of Clinical Technologists is administered by IPEM its data is held separately from that of the IPEM membership and is not shared.

A similar question was asked recently in relation to those who were members of IIE wishing to join the Register. The answer remains the same - all applications to join IPEM (and I am sure the IIE and ART) are judged on completely different criteria, are assessed by a different organisation from that of the Voluntary Register, and, as such, need to be made on a separate application form.
