The Medical Radiation Practice Board of Australia (the Board) and the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA) have announced the national registration fee for medical radiation practitioners for 2018/19.
The Board and AHPRA agreed to increase the registration fees to $185. For most practitioners, the new fee will cover the registration period from 1 December 2018 to 30 November 2019.
The fee for practitioners whose principal place of practice is New South Wales is $137.1
A full fee schedule, including the fee arrangements for practitioners whose principal place of practice is NSW, has been published on the Board’s website.
The National Registration and Accreditation Scheme (the National Scheme) is funded by practitioners’ registration fees. The decision to increase the fee ensures that the Board and AHPRA have the funds required to carry out their respective functions and to protect the public.
Fees support the Board and AHPRA in the continual development of a safe and mobile Australian workforce for health practitioners and the public in the most efficient ways possible. It also allows the Board and AHPRA to facilitate the provision of high quality education and training for practitioners.
1 NSW is a co-regulatory jurisdiction.
