Pharmacists encouraged to renew registration by 30 November

31 Oct 2019

Pharmacists have until 30 November 2019 to renew their registration on time.

More than 30,100 pharmacists hold general or non-practising registration with the Pharmacy Board of Australia (the Board).

The quickest and easiest way to renew is online.

Renewal applications received in December will incur a late payment fee in addition to the annual renewal fee. This is outlined in the Health Practitioner Regulation National Law, as in force in each state and territory (the National Law).

A fees schedule is published on the Board’s website.

Pharmacists whose application is received on time, or during the following one-month late period, can continue practising while their application is processed.

Pharmacists who do not apply to renew their registration by 31 December 2019 will have lapsed registration. They will be removed from the Register of Pharmacists and will not be able to practise their profession in Australia.
