Registration Process

The process of registration of the health institution involves:

  1. Finding the premises and making all necessary renovations.
  2. Inspection by the local authority and getting the positive health report.
  3. Application through the relevant council.
  4. Forwarding of the papers to HPA after the consideration of application by the Practice Control Committee of the relevant council.
  5. Once received at HPA the practitioner must pay the relevant registration fee.  The fees depend upon the category of the health institution and are inclusive of the inspection and subscription for the year in which the application is made.
  6. The HPA will conduct the inspection within 2 weeks of receiving the application, and the report is considered by the Registration Committee of the Authority who will either approve the registration or defer it until all requirements are met.
  7. Urgent inspections may be conducted for an additional fee.
  8. It is an offence for practitioners to start operating prior to HPA inspection and approval.
  9. The health institution will only be registered and issued with a registration certificate when it has met the minimum requirements of its category.
  10. The HPA certificate is valid for the one calendar year. 
  11. Practitioners should ensure that the registration certificate is displayed in a prominent place within the institution (Section 106-i of the Act). Failure to display the certificate will attract a penalty.
