The National Registration and Accreditation Scheme (the National Scheme) is funded by practitioners’ registration fees.
The Board has established a clear financial plan that will ensure that there are sufficient funds for the Board and AHPRA to provide an efficient, effective and economical national scheme of registration and accreditation, while ensuring that practitioners are not unduly burdened.
Board Chair, Neil Hicks, said that over the past two years the Board has worked to reduce its costs, the benefits of which are now flowing to registrants in the form of lower registration fees. The Board will now work with AHPRA to ensure that the administrative costs of the scheme are kept at minimum levels.
The Board will shortly publish the Health Profession Agreement (HPA). The HPA outlines the partnership between the Board and the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA) and provides information about the Board’s financial operations, the services provided to the Board, and the funds provided to AHPRA for administration of the scheme.
