Whakahounga Tohu
Setting professional development requirements for recertification is one way the Council can be assured you are taking action to stay competent as a pharmacist.

Each year when you apply to renew your annual practising certificate, you will need to

  • confirm you have met professional development requirements
  • confirm you have practised for at least 450 hours in the three years immediately preceding your application. See further information here
  • declare that you are fit to practise

Please be honest if you are unable to confirm a statement. We may ask you for more information, but our role is to work alongside you wherever possible to enable you to practise safely.

False or misleading declarations may result in your application being declined.
