Online renewal for pharmacists is now open

04 Oct 2023

Pharmacists are invited to renew their general or non-practising registration.

You will soon receive an email from Ahpra providing access to online renewal.

Be sure to renew before 30 November 2023, to avoid a late fee.

Information for your 2023 renewal of registration

Registration renewal is online only

Remember, you must complete your registration renewal online. Read the renewal FAQs on the Ahpra website for helpful tips on logging on.

If you submit your application on time, or during the following one-month late period, you can continue practising while your application is assessed.

If you don’t renew before the end of the late period, 31 December 2023, your registration will lapse, you’ll be removed from the register of practitioners, and you won’t be able to use the protected title, pharmacist.

Got questions about your renewal?

The renewal FAQs on the Ahpra website cover common questions on professional indemnity insurance, recency of practice, continuing professional development, and what to do if you have a change in your criminal history or health impairments you need to tell us about. Remember you don’t need to tell us about well managed health conditions that do not affect your practice.

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Engagement and Support team

The Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Engagement and Support team is here to help Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander pharmacists with the renewal process. If, after reading the renewal FAQs, you would like help with your renewal application, please email the support team at [email protected].

Check your registration

The register of practitioners is updated every day making it the safest way for practitioners, employers and the public to check registration status.
