Annual Practising Certificate

In order to practice in New Zealand all osteopaths need to be registered and also to hold an Annual Practising Certificate (APC). Practitioners must not claim to be practising as osteopaths or do anything to suggest that they are practising unless/until they hold a current practising certificate issued by the Osteopathic Council.

If you are new to the profession in New Zealand, (either a new graduate, or have just passed the Council examination), or are re-entering the profession after a period of absence click here.

If you have a current practising certificate issued by the Osteopathic Council, (whether or not you are currently in New Zealand) and you wish to renew it, so that it stays valid for another year click here.
