The Podiatry Board of Australia’s revised registration standard for endorsement for scheduled medicines and associated guidelines came into effect on 1 August 2018. Information about the new standard and guidelines can be found on the Endorsement for scheduled medicines page.
Recognising that there were practitioners working towards an endorsement under Pathway 2 of the previous registration standard when the new registration standard took effect, the Board has developed transitional arrangements. The transitional arrangements allow these practitioners to continue under Pathway 2 or switch to Pathway B of the new registration standard.
The transitional arrangements are outlined in the Transitional arrangements for the new Registration standard: Endorsement for scheduled medicines, available below.
An easy to follow summary is in the Flowchart: A summary of transitional arrangements for the new Endorsement for scheduled medicines registration standard, available below.
There are important timelines you must meet if you want to use the transitional arrangements.
The documents below are only relevant if you are using the transitional arrangements to continue under Pathway 2 of the previous endorsement for scheduled medicines registration standard.
If you are using the transitional arrangements to continue under Pathway B of the new endorsement for scheduled medicines registration standard, information about the new registration standard and guidelines can be found on the Endorsement for scheduled medicines page.
One of the requirements for podiatrists or podiatric surgeons who are following Pathway 2 towards applying to the Board to have their registration endorsed for scheduled medicines is the successful completion of 15 web-based case studies approved by the Board.
The Board has approved the following web-based case studies for the purpose of endorsement for scheduled medicines:
Copies of documents provided in support of an application, or other purpose required by the National Law, must be certified as true copies of the original documents.
