Registration and Licensing

As of 1 July 2012 under the national requirements of the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA), all Medical Radiation Science practitioners need to register with the Medical Radiation Practice Board of Australia (MRPBA).   Enquiries regarding registration should be directed to the MRPBA.

The Registration Board is the regulating authority for both disciplines and regulations relating to registration and this overrides all other requirements eg. conditions set down by the Australian Society of Medical Imaging and Radiation Therapy.

Licensing of Diagnostic Radiographers/Medical Imaging Technologists and Radiation Therapists is a State issue and therefore varies from State to State or Territory.

Separate fees for licensing apply to each State.

If you are seeking employment, it is advisable to speak with the relevant state licensing and national registration authority about the requirements.

The licensing authorities are as follows:
