Kia Ora - Welcome to the Dietitians Board

Our vision is to promote and enhance the health of New Zealanders by ensuring that dietitians practise safely and competently. 


The Dietitians Board is one of 16 Regulatory Authorities established under the Health Practitioners Competence Assurance Act 2003 (HPCA Act) that enables self-regulation of various health professions - the principle purpose of the act being to protect the health and safety of members of the public.


Dietitians wishing to practise dietetics in New Zealand (or be known as a dietitian) must, by law be registered with the Dietitians Board and must hold a current practising certificate.
