Does anyone know when the limit is official up. I hold a JAA PPL MEIR and am going to begin my CPL next week and will be done in two weeks. As this is the last thing i need to complete within the requirements does the limit expire from date of skills test past for the CPL or do i need the licence to be issued within the 36 months?

It's a good question. Recently the UK CAA have applied a rule where the ATPL theory credits are frozen on acquisition of an IR. To be absolutely certain you need to check this with the CAA.

Not really sure if this was the question but:
The 36 month limit is held against the date of the last skill test (either CPL or IR) - for you that would be the CPL.
Some CAA's has been known to accept that you have just booked the skill test within the limit (due to 3-4 weeks delay from booking time to actual skill test).
In other words, maximum 36 month from your last ATPL theoretical exam and to the date of the last skill test.

Your JAR-FCL ATPL(A) theory exams will remain valid for 36 months for the issue of an IR(A) and/or an ATPL(A). After this, as long as you are holding a valid JAR-FCL CPL(A) and IR(A), the same ATPL theory credit will remain valid until 7 years after any lapse of your CPL or IR. All according to JAR-FCL.

Sounds like you're okay since you've got the IR....
