Delivery Policy

New Membership Application Processing

Stage 1

Please allow 14 days for receipt of your application to be acknowledged by our administration office. This includes checking all requested documentation has been supplied, the processing of the application fee payment, the issuing of paid tax invoice and cash receipt. Your medical indemnity will be checked during this period, so please ensure you have the correct level of cover and have provided the information we need. Not providing the correct information or not having the correct level of cover for the procedures you conduct will delay the processing of your application. Please ensure all websites that you are associated with meet the regulatory bodies (TGA, APHRA, etc.) advertising rules and regulations.

The paid application fee is valid for six (6) months.  This allows for any short comings in your application to be rectified as well as allowing for a formal offer of College membership to be accepted (membership fee paid in full).  Should this deadline not be met, you will be required to pay another application fee of $250.00 incl. GST, to cover a further six month processing duration and so on if you wish to progress with your application for membership.

Stage 2

If your application is complete, your application will be presented to the Membership Review Committee (MRC).

Please allow up to 45 days for the committee to assess your application. You will be advised of the committee’s deliberation via email. The MRC decision is final.

For those wishing to achieve a higher level of membership and/or Fellowship, there will be educational pathways for you to follow to achieve this.  Please enquire about our Registrar Training Program.

Stage 3

All successful applicants, those qualifying for Full Membership or Fellowship, will be invited to a convocation ceremony/celebration.
