Dietitians have until 30 June 2022 to complete their declarations and ensure they have a valid form of payment for registration fees.

It is the professional responsibility of all HCPC registrants to complete your renewal on time, if you would like to continue to be on the HCPC Register. We urge all registrants to renew as soon as possible, to ensure you can continue to practise without disruption.

The registration team have sent email and text reminders about the renewal deadline, however you do not need to receive either of these to complete the renewal process. 


How do I renew?

You can renew your registration quickly and easily, using your online account. Follow the steps below to do this.

All steps are necessary to renew your registration


  • (if you have already done so, go to step 2)

    Go to the activation page, enter the email address you provided when you registered, plus your registration number. Then follow the instructions on the page.

    If your email address is not recognised, or you need to change it, click the ‘Change email and activate’ button to enter a new email address and activate your account.

    If you need support with this process, try our step by step instructions on activating your account.


  • Log in to your online account using the email address and password that you set up during the activation process.

    You will be asked to enter a verification code for security. This will be sent to you via SMS.

    If you need support with this stage of the renewal process, take a look at our step by step instructions for logging in.


  • In your online account, click the link in your renewal section to complete your renewal declarations.

    You will see the date your renewal is due, followed by your professional declarations and your payment options.

    Complete your declaration by answering or confirming each statement.

    Then make your payment to complete your renewal. 


  • You can choose from one of the following options to pay your renewal fee:

    • Pay the full amount of £196.24; or 
    • Spread the cost by paying by direct debit

    If you pay in full, please ensure you leave enough time for the payment to be processed. The time taken for this can range from 1 to 3 days, depending on your bank. Your registration is not complete until we have received your payment.

    If you choose to pay by direct debit, please note that your renewal will be complete once you have submitted your declarations and direct debit as your payment choice. We will not collect your direct debit until you have completed your declarations.

    Direct debits will be taken twice a year, over the course of two years, in instalments of £49.06, or £24.53 if paying the graduate rate.

How do I know my renewal is complete?

Once we have received and processed your payment (or valid direct debit instruction) and your declarations, your record on the online Register will be updated. You will receive confirmation of this via email.

Check the online Register


What happens if I don’t renew in time?

If you don’t complete your declaration and payment by the deadline, or if you remove your direct debit instruction without an alternative payment, you will be removed from the Register.

You will not be able to practise or use any of the protected titles associated with your profession until you are readmitted to the Register

It is vital that you follow all the steps above to ensure you can successfully activate your account, log in and complete your renewal.

What do I do if I no longer need to be registered?

If you no longer need to be registered with the HCPC, you can remove your name from the Register. Find out more on the deregistration process.

Common issues when trying to log in

  • This can be caused by a number of factors. One or more of the changes below should resolve it.

    1. Make sure you’ve activated your account before logging in. If this is your first time logging in, or your first time logging in since 2020, you’ll need to go to hcpc-uk.org/activate and complete the steps.

    2. Re-activate your account: go to the activation page (hcpc-uk.org/activate), enter the same email address and use the ‘Change email and activate’ button (this can re-trigger the system notifications) 

    3. Re-activate your account with a new email address: go to the activation page (hcpc-uk.org/activate), enter a new email address and use the ‘Change email and activate’ button

    Tried these steps without success?
    Contact priorityreg@hcpc-uk.org with your registration number, and explain the issue. Please include information about the steps you’ve followed, so that our team knows what has been tried. Ask for details on how to make your readmission payment by bank transfer.

  • This will mean that you can’t receive your verification code via SMS. You won’t be able to complete your two-factor authentication, so you'll need the number on your account to be updated.

    This can only be done by a member of our Registration team. Please contact priorityreg@hcpc-uk.org with full details as soon as possible. We will need your name, address and date of birth to identify you, and your new phone number.

  • There can be some delays to receiving the verification text message. This can range from one to six hours.

    If you've waited six hours without success, contact priorityreg@hcpc-uk.org with your registration number, and explain the issue. Please include information about the steps you’ve followed, so that our team knows what has been tried. Ask for details on how to make your readmission payment by bank transfer.

  • This can be caused by a number of factors. One or more of the changes below should resolve it.

    1. Make sure you are using the most recent temporary password you were sent. Each time a password is generated, the previous one becomes invalidated. This will mean it is rejected. If you’ve generated multiple passwords, make sure there is no chance that the correct one is still on its way.

    2. Follow the link in the activation email itself. This is a unique link with information that communicates with your account settings. You won’t be able to activate your account wihtout clicking it. 

    3. Open the activation link using a browser that is not Google Chrome. To do this, right click the link (or tap and hold) and select ‘Copy link address’. Then paste it into a new browser.

    4. Go to the activation page (hcpc-uk.org/activate), enter the same email address and use the ‘Change email and activate’ button.

    5. Go to the activation page (hcpc-uk.org/activate), enter a new email address and use the ‘Change email and activate’ button.

  • Please ensure your registration number is entered correctly. Registration numbers start with letters followed by a series numbers with no spaces. For example: ABC01234 

    Ensure the email address is the same one that you have provided to us previously. You can try again this step again if you have more than one email address you may have used.

  • If you received a message that the email address is 'already in use' or 'activated', you can either:

    1. Click 'Change email and activate' to activate using a new email address - this will take you to a new page on which you'll be asked to verify your identity using personal data

    2. Visit the system login page and use the password you have created, use the temporary password if you have been sent one or reset your password by clicking ‘Cant access your account’
