The MCNZ will exempt all vocationally-registered doctors from recertification programme requirements until 28 February 2021. Council staff will not be auditing doctors for compliance with recertification programmes over the coming 11 months, but Council will expect doctors to be enrolled and actively participating in their required programmes from 1 March 2021.
As we move closer to 28 February 2021, Council staff will work with the Colleges on a strategy to resume recertification programmes and associated audit activity.

The Dental Council of New Zealand Council has decided to suspend the current recertification programme that ends on 31 December 2020. This means practitioners are not required to complete CPD and contact peer activities for the time being.
