This information is for pharmacists who are no longer on the register of pharmacists who wish to reinstate their registration in New Zealand.
If your registration was cancelled (under either the HPCA Act 2003 or the Pharmacy Act 1970) you can make an application to have your registration reinstated on the Register.
Applications for reinstatement should be made online. Documentation to support an application includes:
Reinstatement of your registration alone does not entitle you to practise as a pharmacist in New Zealand. If you wish to practice you can apply to be issued with an Annual Practising Certificate (APC) at the same time as you are applying for reinstatement. See Returning to Practice for further information and additional documentation requirements.
If you are not going to practice once your registration has been reinstated, your status on the Register will be ‘inactive’ (ie non-practising).
Begin your application for reinstatement.
