The general registration fee has been set at $336, limiting the increase to indexation. The general registration fee for pharmacists whose principal place of practice is New South Wales is $3361. It will apply from 15 September 2017 and cover the registration period for most pharmacists of 1 December 2017 to 30 November 2018.
A full fee schedule, including the fee arrangements for pharmacists whose principal place of practice is NSW, is published on the Board’s website.
The National Registration and Accreditation Scheme (the National Scheme) is funded by health practitioners’ registration fees. The decision to increase the fee by indexation ensures pharmacists are not unduly burdened, but still provides sufficient income to allow the Board to carry out its duties and protect the public.
1NSW is a co-regulatory jurisdiction.
