Chinese medicine practitioners with non-practising registration are not permitted to treat, prescribe or refer, regardless of whether they are being remunerated. There is a reduced fee for non-practising registration. These practitioners continue to receive the Board's publications.
This type of registration may be suitable for practitioners who:
- will be overseas for some time and not practising in Australia or
- are not practising temporarily (for example on maternity or sick leave).
Practitioners who have been granted non-practising registration do not need to comply with the continuing professional development standard, the professional indemnity insurance standard or the recency of practice standard for the duration of their non-practising registration.
