Registration due 30 June? Did you renew on time?

22 Jul 2010

Statement from AHPRA


Was your registration due 30 June?  Did you renew on time?

If not you MUST act now or your registration may lapse and you may not be able to practise in Australia after 31 July 2010.


Who is affected?

Registrants who did NOT renew registration by 30 June 2010 or those due to renew now.

  

What is the problem?

If your registration was due on 30 June or 1 July and you did not renew your registration by 30 June, you MUST renew your registration now. If you do not lodge your registration renewal before 31 July 2010 your registration will lapse and you will not be able to practise.

  

What are the Boards doing?

Through the Australian Health Practitioners Regulation Agency (AHPRA), each individual board will be sending a letter to every practitioner who is affected by this issue. The letter includes:

  • a reminder to act now to renew your registration
  • a login and password so you can renew online
  • a renewal form, which you can complete and mail to AHPRA before 31 July 2010

How can I renew online?

Please note: Chiropractors and Limited registrants cannot renew online due to the information required to complete your renewal. Refer to renewing by mail.

Follow these steps:

  1. Look out for your letter from AHPRA. Call AHPRA on 1300 419 495 if you do not get your letter by 28 July 2010.
  2. To renew online, go to the Board home page and click ‘login’ to secure services’ on the bottom left of the screen.
  3. Enter the user ID and password issued to you by AHPRA and follow the prompts to renew online.
  4. You will need to make declarations about the Board’s new registration standards that came into effect on 1 July and you will need to pay your registration fee. Renewing online is easy; you can also access a quick guide
  5. Your registration will be processed automatically unless you make an adverse declaration, which may need to be reviewed.
  6. When you have renewed online, you can choose to print a statement of updated registration details or you can request a formal certificate to be issued by mail.
  7. If you have lodged your renewal with AHPRA you can continue practising until your renewal is decided and processed.
  8. If you have any questions about renewing online, call AHPRA on 1300 419 495 and a member of our team will talk you through it.
