"Fostering Excellence in Physiotherapy – Physiotherapists Actively Making a Difference."

We are the regulatory authority for Physiotherapists in New Zealand, established under the Health Practitioners Competence Assurance Act (2003). The principal purpose of the Act is to protect the health and safety of members of the public by providing for mechanisms to ensure that health practitioners are competent and fit to practise their profession.

We are not currently able to access our offices at 80 The Terrace due to earthquake strengthening issues. However we are now in new temporary offices on floor 18, Plimmer Towers.


If you have renewed your Annual Practising Certificate (APC) online, your APC will be emailed to you on Monday 3rd April, following an administrative check. If you successfully updated your APC online, you can continue practising prior to receiving your APC as it will be effective from the date you renewed it online.

 If you have updated your status to non-practising, a confirmation, including the receipt, will be emailed to you in the next few working days.
