Dietitians Board Fee Consultation

The Dietitians Board (the Board) invite practitioners and stakeholders to comment on the Board’s proposed changes to Annual Practising Certificate (APC) fees and other fees.

You can find the consultation document HERE.

Each year the Board considers whether the fees it has set remain appropriate and sufficient to enable it to meet its operational and regulatory obligations.  The last time fees were consulted on was in 2015.

The Board has undertaken a robust review of current fees which are calculated on a full cost recovery basis which is the philosophy established by the office of the Auditor-General and the Treasury, of good practice guidelines.

The review has focussed on whether the Board is both sufficiently recovering costs for all services provided, and, if it can continue to undertake all the functions required of the Board under the HPCA Act (2003).

Your feedback to this consultation will help the Board make its final decision on the proposed changes.

If you wish to make submissions, please provide them in writing to the Registrar by 5pm 18 October 2019.  You can send your submission by post or email.

The Board will make a decision at the next Board meeting (6 & 7 November) in time for the new fee structure to be gazetted prior to 31 December 2019.
