Are your contact details up to date? Registration renewal reminders will be sent to registrants soon.
Optometrists are due to renew their general or non-practising registration with the Optometry Board of Australia (the Board) by 30 November 2015.
Under the National Law1, all registered optometrists are responsible for renewing their registration on time each year. The quickest and easiest way to renew your registration is online.
The Board urges all optometrists to ensure contact details, including your email address and mobile phone number, are current.
Update your contact information by logging in to our secure online services. Use your user ID and secure password, and follow the prompts.
If you do not have your user ID, complete an online enquiry form and select ‘Online Services - Practitioner’ as the category type. You might also need to reset your password.
The Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA) will contact you individually about renewal on behalf of the Board.
So keep a look out for the reminders to renew as confirmation that online renewal is open.
Your renewal reminder (email or hard copy) includes all the information you need for easy, online renewal of registration:
Make sure you renew on time because, under the National Law, there is no option for AHPRA or the Board to renew your registration after it has lapsed without you having to complete a new application for registration.
