Intercountry subscriber gateway


Welcome to the Subscribers’ Site.

This area is for use exclusively by employees of subscribing adoption agencies ( both local authorities and independent adoption agencies) so please visit us regularly to keep up to date with the latest developments in intercountry adoption, including updates on legislation and information about countries of origin. If you have any queries then as a subscriber you have priority access to the IAC Advice Line. For details of how to access this please enter the Gateway and select Subscriber News.

Within the gateway you will also have access to the Subscriber Bulletin, which is emailed to all Subscribers on a regular basis. The bulletin highlights key changes in legislation or regulation that could impact your work, changes to requirements and procedures in countries overseas and lists up and coming courses and other events at IAC.

The archive section also includes all of the past bulletins.

The gateway also accesses the Practitioner Network page. All subscribing authorities are entitled to send two workers to the Network meetings and the gateway page gives date of future meetings as well as minutes of previous minutes for the last year. Earlier minutes are located in the Archive section.

Finally the Subscriber news page gives quick and easy access to the key information such as key changes in legislation and regulations, the Advice Line priority number and its opening times and the referral forms for preparation courses which can be downloaded.

We hope you find the site useful and don’t forget that IAC is available to support you with any intercountry adoption queries. To enter the site enter your name and password. If you have lost your password or have any general queries concerning Subscriber Services, please contact Julie Liebling on
