The registration process is very rigorous and is estimated to take 3-6 months. The first is the receipt and compliance check by the Registration office. Thereafter a compliant application is submitted to the QAC if a foreign qualification is part of the application package. After the QAC, recommendations/applications are submitted to the respective Professional Advisory Committee (specific for each field of practice) to assess an application and make a recommendation to the Registration Committee, who makes the final decision in the registration process.
Progress can be delayed for various reasons namely receipt of non-compliant applications (i.e. outstanding documents or fees), request for additional information by the various committees involved in the assessment process, as well as other factors.
