Meeting the registration requirements

To be eligible for general registration as a medical radiation practitioner, you need to meet the Board’s qualification requirements and registration standards.

Applications for registration from overseas qualified medical radiation practitioners are assessed against:

  • Board approved assessment criteria for qualifications and
  • registration standards which are:
    • criminal history
    • English language skills
    • professional indemnity insurance arrangements, and
    • recency of practice.

Applicants who are assessed as meeting the Board’s qualification requirements and registration standards are eligible for registration.

Since 4 February 2015, the process for checking criminal history outside of Australia requires certain applicants and registered practitioners to apply for an international criminal history check from an approved vendor. For more information, please refer to the international criminal history page on the AHPRA website.
