31 Oct 2019
Paramedics have until 30 November 2019 to renew their registration on time.
More than 17,300 paramedics hold general or non-practising registration with the Paramedicine Board of Australia (the Board).
Renewing your registration online is quick and easy. The Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA) began sending out information on renewal in October.
Reminders will be emailed several times throughout the renewal period, so please make sure your contact details provided to AHPRA are up to date in your online services account.
A fees schedule is published on the Board’s website. Those who renew on or before 30 November 2019 will be charged the standard annual renewal fees.
Renewal applications received in December will incur a late payment fee in addition to the annual renewal fee. This is outlined in the Health Practitioner Regulation National Law, as in force in each state and territory (the National Law).
Paramedics 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.
Practitioners who do not apply to renew their registration by 31 December 2019 will have lapsed registration. They will be removed from the Register of Paramedics and will not be able to practise their profession in Australia.
