Medical Board of Australia - Registration Renewal

Registration Renewal

You do not need to have a CPD home when you renew your registration in 2022

When you renew in 2022, you need to declare you have met the CPD registration standard in the previous registration period, but this does not include doing your CPD through a CPD home.

Watch this short video to learn how to renew your registration online.

The registration renewal date for medical practitioners with general, specialist or non-practising registration is 30 September. The registration renewal date for practitioners with limited or provisional registration is determined on a case by case basis.

The Board can grant up to 12 months registration. You can check your registration details and expiry date on the national register.

The online register is updated every day and is the safest and most up-to-date way for a practitioner or an employer to check someone's registration details. Paper registration certificates will no longer be mailed out, if needed, you can print a copy from the online portal, the same place you renew your registration. You can also access your tax invoice here.

Make sure your contact details provided to AHPRA, including email, are current as you will be sent reminders when your registration is due. Look for these reminders from AHPRA as confirmation that online renewal is open. After receiving your reminder, go to the AHPRA login page.

See fees for cost of annual renewal, including the late payment fee for renewal applications received during October.

If you do not renew your registration by 30 September, or within the one month late period, your name will be removed from the national register and your registration will lapse in accordance with the National Law.

If you wish to keep practising and do not renew registration by 31 October you must submit a fast track application for registration. Fast track application forms are available on the Board website or by phoning the Customer Service Team on 1300 419 495 during November.

If submitting a fast track application, you cannot practise until your application is processed and your registration details are updated on the national register.
