The Pharmacy Board has reminded pharmacists to renew their registration by the end of the month
Pharmacists have until 30 November 2018 to renew their registration on time.
“More than 29,500 pharmacists hold general or non-practising registration with the Pharmacy Board of Australia,” the Board says, pointing out that the quickest and easiest way to renew is online.
Renewal applications received in December will incur a late payment fee in addition to the annual renewal fee, the Board says.
A fees schedule is published on the Board’s website.
Pharmacists whose application for general registration is received on time or during the following one-month late period, can continue practising while their application is processed.
However pharmacists who do not apply to renew their registration by 31 December 2018 will have lapsed registration.
They will be removed from the Register of Pharmacists and will not be able to practise their profession in Australia.
