Any issues or questions should be communicated directly to us.

Please note that to cancel a subscription you need to contact us directly. 

The submission deadlines can be seen in the Member area or on the IOMA Pro page. We might charge a fee for processing a late submission, or refuse to accept the submitted materials.
