Renewals

Although the Board sends out renewal notices as a courtesy, it is your responsibility to ensure that your registration is renewed before its expiry date.

Renewal applications must be lodged at least two months before your registration expires to give the Board time to process them.

If you do not lodge your application two months before expiry, your registration may not be renewed in time and will expire and you will be unable to work.

Related documents

At renewal time, all practitioners must provide a list of projects undertaken during the past two years. For your assistance, a sample project list is available below:
