Cancellation Policies

Distinctions Cancellation Policy

After submitting your application form, if for any reason you are unable to send your submission or need to make other changes, please e-mail distinctions@rps.org. Any cancellations or change requests must be made via e-mail. If you cancel/defer within 14 days of your assessment date you will be fully charged for the assessment. We are unable to offer a refund or deferral. You can request once only to cancel/defer 15 days or more prior to your assessment, without any charge, but all future requests will incur a £25 administration charge. The Society is unable to refund any cancellation or offer a transfer to another event if the attendee does not notify the Distinctions Department by e-mail 14 days prior to the event start date [distinctions@rps.org].

The Society reserves the right to cancel any event 7 days prior to its start date, or less than 24 hours due to adverse weather conditions or extraordinary circumstances beyond its control. All attendees are advised to check hotel and travel cancellation/refund policies, as the Society is unable to offer compensation for any loss.
