The AHPC would like to inform you that we will be accepting applications to display Additional Qualifications (AQ) on the Professional Registration System (PRS) as of Friday, 20 November 2015.

The display of AQ was previously unavailable to allied health professionals (AHPs). Its launch will allow AHPs to submit online applications to have their additional qualifications entered against their name in their respective Register for Allied Health Professionals. Applications to display AQ will be charged the prescribed fee of SGD50 per post graduate qualification.

The criteria for the display of AQ and how to submit an application on the PRS may be found on the AHPC’s website at this link.

The AHPC would like to highlight that Section 25(1) of the Allied Health Professions Act 2013 “the Act” stipulates that registered AHPs shall use only qualifications entered in registers and approved titles, etc. Pursuant to the Act, no registered AHP shall:

a) Use or exhibit or publish in any card, letter, stationery, nameplate, signboard, placard, circular, handbill or any notice displayed at the premises used by him for the practice of any prescribed allied health profession any qualification other than the qualifications which are entered against his name in the appropriate register or which has been approved by the Council; or

b) Use any title, addition or designation other than the title, addition or designation which has been approved by the Council.

Any registered AHP who contravenes Section 25(1) may be subject to disciplinary proceedings under the Act.
