Explanatory Note – Increase in fees

The only change from the 2017 fees notice is a 3.6 % increase in practising certificate application fees. This was approved by the Council on 21 November 2018 following consultation with the profession as required under section 99 of the Act.

Key to Annotations

1. Under section 97(1)(i) of the Act the Council may prescribe an additional fee to be paid if a prescribed fee is paid after its due date. Council uses this section to rebate the APC fee by a specified amount for early payment by a specified date, which ensures earlier renewal.

2. Registration in this scope allows those who have passed the preliminary part of the joint Australasian National Veterinary Examination (NVE) to gain practical experience under direct veterinary supervision prior to sitting the final part of NVE. Registration lapses on the day the results of the final examination are released.
