How to renew my HPCSA registration

The registration renewal process can be done online through the HPCSA Portal. Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to renew your HPCSA registration:

  1. Access the HPCSA Portal: Visit the official website of the Health Professions Council of South Africa ( and click on the “HPCSA Portal” link. If you haven’t registered on the portal before, you will need to create an account by providing the required details.
  2. Log in to Your Account: Use your registered email address and password to log in to your HPCSA Portal account.
  3. Update Your Profile: Once logged in, ensure that your profile information is up to date. Check your contact details, qualifications, and other relevant information. If any changes are required, update them accordingly.
  4. Navigate to the “Renewal” Section: In the portal’s main dashboard, look for the section related to “Renewal” or “Registration Renewal.” Click on that section to initiate the renewal process.
  5. Select the Appropriate Registration Category: Choose the correct registration category based on your profession and specialization. The available categories will depend on your previous registration.
  6. Complete the Renewal Application: You will be presented with an online form that requires you to fill in various details, such as your employment status, work address, CPD points, and other relevant information. Ensure that all the required fields are completed accurately.
  7. CPD Compliance: As part of the renewal process, you may need to provide evidence of your Continuing Professional Development (CPD) activities. Make sure you have completed the required CPD points and have any necessary documentation ready for submission.
  8. Payment of Renewal Fee: The renewal process will include the payment of the renewal fee. Ensure that you have a valid payment method (credit/debit card or other accepted payment options) to complete the transaction securely.
  9. Submit the Renewal Application: Review all the information provided for accuracy and completeness before submitting the renewal application. Once you are satisfied with the details, submit the application through the portal.
  10. Confirmation and Receipt: After successful submission and payment, you should receive a confirmation of your renewal application. Keep a copy of the receipt or confirmation for your records.

It is crucial to initiate the renewal process well before your current registration expires to allow sufficient time for processing. The HPCSA may take some time to review and approve your renewal application, so it’s advisable to renew at least a few weeks before the expiration date.

If you encounter any technical issues or have specific questions during the renewal process, you can reach out to the HPCSA directly through their contact details provided on their website or through the HPCSA Portal support team.
