The Psychology Board of Australia (the Board) has announced the national registration fee for psychologists for 2018/19.
The Board has increased the registration fee by indexation, to $474. The fee for practitioners whose principal place of practice is New South Wales is $391.
A full fee schedule, including the fee arrangements for practitioners whose principal place of practice is NSW, has been published on the Board’s website.
The National Registration and Accreditation Scheme (the National Scheme) is funded by practitioners’ registration fees. The decision to increase the fee ensures that the Board has the funds required to carry out its duties and to protect the public.
Fees support the Board in the continual development of a safe and mobile Australian workforce for health practitioners and the public in the most efficient ways possible. It also allows the Board to facilitate the provision of high quality education and training for practitioners.
1NSW is a co-regulatory jurisdiction.
