Practising intention fees


Annual practising certificate (APC) fees provide the bulk of funding for Council’s day-to-day operations. These include the secretariat, member fees and expenses, strategic projects, competence cases, practice audits, and capital expenses such as IT equipment.

The disciplinary levy is set annually for each profession to provide funding for current disciplinary cases and for the costs of future disciplinary cases as they arise.  These include the costs of professional conduct committees and proceedings of the Health Practitioners Disciplinary Tribunal. The Council can impose a special disciplinary levy at any time, to recover extraordinary discipline costs outside of the budgeted provisions.
