Please note:

  • Exemptions from payment of 2018/19 annual fees:

Should you no longer be practicing your profession due to ill health, you may be exempted from payment of the 2018 annual fee. A medical report, issued by a medical practitioner, must accompany such application, which should reach the Council’s offices before 1 April 2018.

Exemption from paying the annual fee may be granted from the year in which you turn 71 (if you turn 71 before 1 April 2018) except for practitioners registered in Professional Boards for Environmental Health Practitioners, Medical Technologist, Radiography & Clinical Technology, Dietetics and Nutritionists, who may be granted exemption from the year in which they turn 66.

  • Voluntary erasure:

Written application for voluntary erasure under section 19(1)(c) of the Act must be received by Council on or before 31 March 2018 and 2018/19 annual membership fees will not be due and payable on successful finalisation of application by Council.

  • Allocation of monies received from practitioners:

Monies received from practitioners will be allocated against oldest debt first. It is important that practitioners therefore use the Online Renewals Portal to ensure that there are no other monies due and payable.

  • Erasure from relevant register due to non-payment of 2018/19 annual fees:

The non-payment or partial payment of 2018/19 annual fees will result in a Registered Person being suspended from the register and the need for restoration which in all cases attracts a penalty fee.
