ICES Longitudinal Profile Request Form
We have moved from e-mail and phone requests to purely web-based ICES longitudinal profile requests. We hope this speeds up our processing of profiles and ensures that we have all the information needed to complete the profile. The secure (University log-in required) request form is available here. It takes approximately 10-14 days for us to process and return the ICES Longitudinal Profile.
