Revised Guidelines for mandatory notifications

New guidelines

The Guidelines for mandatory notifications were reviewed as part of a scheduled review and because of changes to mandatory notification requirements that came into effect on 1 March 2020.

As a result of the review separate guidelines have been developed for mandatory notifications about registered health practitioners and registered students. This is because of the limited circumstances when a mandatory notification must be made about a registered student.

The requirement to make a mandatory notification about a practitioner is different for different notifier groups. For that reason, the guidelines about practitioners have been structured according to notifier type (that is treating practitioner, non-treating practitioner, employer) so that relevant information for that notifier group is easier to find.
