Registered health practitioners using the AHPRA portal can now request a Certificate of Registration Status (CoRS) online.
In the past, this was only a manual process using a form which was either posted or hand-delivered to an AHPRA office.
What is CoRS?
When practitioners are seeking registration or employment that requires registration outside of Australia, the regulatory authority in that jurisdiction may require a Certificate of Registration Status (CoRS). This document is also referred to as a Certificate of Good Standing or Certificate of Current Professional Status by some regulators.
AHPRA offers a service to practitioners to provide a CoRS to regulatory authorities in other countries and some other approved organisations, such as the Australian Nursing and Midwifery Accreditation Council (ANMAC). The certificate is never provided to the requesting practitioner nor to an employer and can only be sent to an AHPRA approved regulatory body or organisation.
