CPD Default

Removal From The Register
If a Sonographer does not comply with all of the requirements for continuation on the Register, the Sonographer’s name will be removed. A reminder letter will be sent after the due date for either fee payment or CPD default. If the Registry receives no correspondence within the specified timeframe, the Sonographer’s name will be removed from the Register and Medicare Australia notified accordingly.

Return to the Register Following CPD Default Removal
A completed ASAR application form and fee of AUD $150 including GST must be forwarded to the ASAR Secretariat. Once received and approved by the ASAR Board the applicant will be placed on the Register under the following conditions:

  1. For the following three years, the Sonographer must pay an annual fee of AUD $150 including GST to remain on the Register.
  2. The Sonographer must participate in the ASAR CPD program and submit 30 CPD credits to ASAR within each 12-month period for a total of 36 months. A CPD audit will be conducted at the end of each 12-month period. The first 12-month period will begin on the date that ASAR Council returns the Sonographer to the Register.

Following the final CPD audit, successful completion of this 36-month period will result in the Sonographer being returned to regular accredited Sonographer status.

If at any point in this 36-month period the Sonographer does not comply with the outlined CPD and/or fee requirements, the Sonographer’s name will be removed from the Register and Medicare Australia will be notified of the removal. In this case, the Sonographer may return to the Register via Category 2 by enrolling in an ASAR accredited qualification. Alternatively, the Sonographer may return to the Register following successful completion of an ASAR accredited re-entry program.

Return to the Register Following Removal Due to Non Payment of Fees
If a Sonographer does not comply with all of the requirements for continuation on the Register, the Sonographer’s name will be removed. A reminder letter will be sent after the due date for free payment. If the Registry receives no correspondence within the specified timeframe, the Sonographer’s name will be removed from the Register and Medicare Australia notified accordingly.
