Revised registration standards take effect from today

01 Dec 2015

Revised registration standards for Continuing professional development (CPD) and Recency of Practice take effect today.

The Dental Board of Australia has previously published the contents of the revised standards and supporting materials to help dental practitioners understand the new requirements.

The revised registration standards1 now in effect are:

  • Continuing professional development (CPD)
  • Recency of practice

The revised standards will apply to most applicants for initial registration, and applicants for renewal of registration from 1 October 2016. They do not apply to the current cycle of renewals.

For more information on the changes made to these registration standards, see the Board’s news item.

The standards were revised after a scheduled review, which included public consultation. National Boards have previously published consultation reports providing a summary of the consultation processes, rationale for any changes and proposed way forward, including areas where further work is planned.

Please refer to AHPRA’s registration standards page for additional information and resources. 

1Registration standards define the requirements that applicants and registrants in the regulated professions need to meet to be registered.
