Applying for Registration
Please post all registration applications. The Board requires the originals of all registration applications and accompanying certified documentation.
You should allow for 2 to 3 weeks for processing, after the Board has received your fully completed registration application (and the desktop assessment and cultural competence open book exam has been completed, which is required for overseas qualified applicants).
New Zealand trained applicants
Overseas trained applicants
The Board requires the successful completion of a desktop assessment and a cultural competence open book exam, as part of the registration process. Applicants who have previously been assessed by ANZPAC (Australian and NZ Podiatry Accreditation Council) will not be required to complete the desktop assessment or exam. The ANZPAC letter will remain valid for a 3 year period from from the date on the letter.

Applying for an Annual Practising Certificate (APC)
You are only able to apply to renew your APC online during March and early April each year, at other times the application form must be emailed or posted to the Board. If emailing, please send as one document only.
You should allow 2 weeks for your fully completed APC application to be processed, if not applying online.
Please note: all first time APC applicants and Return to Practice APC applicants must provide evidence of a current Basic Life Support certificate (2 hour minimum) with their APC application and are therefore unable to apply online at present.

Non-practising this year?
If you wish to remain on the Register without a current APC you must pay an annual Inactive Maintenance fee. Contact the Board if you wish to be removed from the Register in order to avoid this fee.
