Removal from and Returning to the Registry
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:
- for the following three years, the Sonographer must pay an annual fee of AUD $150 including GST to remain on the register
- 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 the ASAR Board 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
A completed ASAR application form and fee of AUD $200 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. The CPD triennium will be reset depending on the period of removal: if the period of removal is less than 12 months the current CPD triennium will continue unchanged; if the period of deactivation is greater than 12 months a new CPD triennium will commence following reinstatement to the register.
