Practitioners are reminded you will be charged an additional processing APC fee if you are renewing your APC and fail to get your completed and correct application and fee to us by 30 September 2016. This fee is $45.00 (GST inclusive).
Practitioners are reminded that the Health Practitioners Competence Assurance Act 2003 requires every health practitioner practising in New Zealand to hold a current annual practising certificate. If you do not have a current APC on 1 October 2016, you must cease practise until such time as an APC is issued to you. The public register on the Council website is updated daily on working days, and practitioners can view their APC status online: www.dcnz.org.nz.
