Register of practitioners

If a health practitioner has the word "registered" in the column "registration status" they are registered and are legally able to practise within the scope of their registration. The exceptions to this are:

  1. practitioners who have a ‘non-practising’ status. 
  2. practitioners who have their registration suspended. 
  3. practitioners who have a condition on the registration which stops them from practising.

More information about the terms used in the registers can be found in the Glossary.

Registration expiry date

Under the National Law, practitioners remain registered while their registration renewal application is being processed. Practitioners may be correctly displayed as 'registered', but have a registration expiry date that has passed. The registration expiry date is adjusted as applications that meet the requirements of the National Law are processed.

Registration due?

Practitioners can check online whether their renewal application has been received. If Ahpra has received their application they can continue to practise within the scope of their registration while the application is processed.
