How to Register

To legally practice as an osteopath in New Zealand, you must hold an approved qualification (international or New Zealand based), have current registration with the Osteopathic Council and hold a current Annual Practising Certificate (APC).

 

The purpose of the Health Practitioners Competence Assurance Act 2003 is to protect the health and safety of the public by providing mechanisms to ensure that health practitioners are competent and fit to practice their professions.

 

One of the primary mechanisms to achieve this purpose is the registration of health practitioners.

 

A health practitioner cannot be registered unless a registration authority is satisfied that he or she has a prescribed qualification, is competent to practice and is fit for registration.
