Renewal timeline

Each profession renews at a set time and has three months to submit a renewal

Before the renewal window opens

It is vital that your correspondence address and contact details are up to date with us, otherwise you could miss your invitation to renew your registration.


During the renewal window

You have a three-month 'window' to renew your registration. At the start of the renewal window you will receive correspondence from us within 24 hours of the window opening. (Please do not attempt to renew before receiving this invitation. If you do not receive any correspondence from us after this period please contact the Registration department.)

When to renew

To complete your renewal, you'll need to log into your online account, to make your professional declaration and pay your fee. Before you can log in, you'll need to make sure your account is activated.

You'll have the options of paying your fee in full, or by direct debit. As bank processing times can vary, please allow up to 3 days for payments to be added to your record. Once you've made the declaration and your fee payment has cleared, you'll receive an email confirming that your renewal is complete.



14 days before the deadline

If you have not renewed 14 days before the window closes, we will send reminders to make sure that you are aware of the process and deadline. It is vital that your email address and phone number is up-to-date on your online account. 


Once the renewal window closes

If we don't receive your renewal by the end of the renewal window, your name will be automatically removed from the Register and you will be unable to practice using your protected title. We will email you to confirm that your name is removed. 

If you do not wish to maintain your registration after the window closes, you can log into the online system and make a voluntary de-register request to let us know that you do not intend to renew. 



To return to the Register you will need to complete a readmission form. If you wish to apply for readmission within one month of your profession's renwwal window closing, you can complete the short readmission form - this will be emailed to you when we confirm that your name has been removed.
