Health Profession Agreements

Under the National Law, the Medical Board of Australia and AHPRA work in partnership to implement the National Scheme, each with specific roles, powers and responsibilities set down in the National Law.

The guiding principles of the National Law require the National Scheme to operate in a ‘transparent, accountable, efficient, effective and fair way’; and for registration fees to be reasonable ‘…having regard to the efficient and effective operation of the scheme’.

Each year the Board and AHPRA publish a health professional agreement that details the services provided by AHPRA that enable the Board to carry out its functions under the National Law.

In 2016, all National Boards agreed to the expansion of the HPA to a four-year agreement to reflect the life of the National Scheme strategy, 2015-20. With a four-year head agreement, annual updates to the schedules will be added to the HPA for each National Board up to and including the 2019/20 financial year. Schedules for previous financial years can be found (on the Schedule Archive below).

HPA Process

Head agreement - 2016: Head agreement developed and signed off for four years. Schedule - Each year: Schedul developed and signed off for one year. HPA - Each year: Head agreement and schedule combined to create HPA.
