Consultation on HCPC registration fees

We are the Health and Care Professions Council, a statutory regulator of 16 different health and care professions. I am writing to invite you to respond to the consultation we have launched today on our registration fees.


Our existing registration fees were introduced in April 2009. We are proposing an increase in our fees in order to ensure that we can continue to function effectively as a regulator.

We are proposing a £4 increase (an increase of 5.3%) to the annual renewal fee. This increases the renewal fee from £76 to £80 per year and the percentage increase, compares favourably to inflation of 13.7% over the last four years. We are also proposing a similar level increase to the other fees we charge.

If our proposals are agreed, the fees would be increased from 1 April 2014. Existing registrants would pay the new renewal fee the next time that they renew their registration.

How to reply

There is more information about our proposals in our consultation document. The consultation document is available to download from the consultation page of our website along with our draft rules setting out the new fees.
