On 9 August 2018, the Australian and New Zealand Podiatry Accreditation Council (ANZPAC) was advised by the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA) and the Podiatry Board of Australia (Board) that from 1 July 2019, accreditation functions will no longer be exercised by ANZPAC.  Instead, they will be exercised by a Committee of the Board. 

 

In light of this decision, ANZPAC will not be accepting priority processing applications effective immediately.  Applications for qualifications and skills assessment for migration and/or registration to either Australia or New Zealand will not be accepted after 17 May 2019.

 

Those applicants with a current assessment at that time will be finalised prior to 30 June 2019.
