BOARD MEETINGS The Board held four (4) ordinary meetings during the 2011/2012 financial year. The Board also conducted additional business out of session via email, which increased in volume for the final six (6) months that the Board was in operation. This was as a result of the increased number of applications for registration received from radiographers working in non regulated jurisdictions, who sought registration to ensure their automatic transition to registration with the Medical Radiation Practice Board of Australia as of 1 July 2012. FEES The following fees were determined by the Minister under section 18 of the Health Practitioners Act. $ 25.00Total Registration Fee $ 20.00- Application Fee $ 5.00- Practising Certificate $ 25.00Restoration of Name to Register $ 10.00Renewal of Annual Practising Certificate $ 20.00Duplicate Certificates $ 20.00Verification of Registration All income from fees was paid into NT consolidated revenue. The NT Department of Health was responsible for meeting the operational costs of the Board. In 2010 an administrative agreement was entered into between the NT Department of Health, the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA) and the three NT Boards for the support of the three NT Boards by the NT AHPRA office. These arrangements continued until 30 June 2012, when the three relevant professions transitioned to the National Registration and Accreditation Scheme. The increase in revenue from registration and application fees in this financial year is as a result of a 62% increase in the number of registrants overall. The increase in the number of registrations issued is primarily due to radiographers residing and working in non-regulated jurisdiction seeking registration the NT as a means to achieving a direct transition to the National Register as of 1 July 2012.
