Other qualifications for general registration

There are a number of ways that a person may qualify for general registration as a chiropractor under section 53 of the Health Practitioner Regulation National Law, as in force in each state and territory (the National Law).

Section 53(c) enables an individual who holds a qualification relevant to chiropractic to qualify for general registration by completing an examination required by the Chiropractic Board of Australia. The relevant examination for the purposes of section 53(c) is an exam by the Council on Chiropractic Education Australasia (CCEA).

Accordingly, if an individual holds a qualification relevant to chiropractic and a statement of attainment from the CCEA, the individual will qualify for general registration pursuant to section 53(c).
