HCPC consultation on Registration Fees

10 October 2018

HCPC are consulting on proposals to increase their registration fees. If adopted, the changes would be effective from 1 October 2019 and existing registrants would pay the new renewal fee when their profession next renews its registration.

The increases are needed to support the new strategic focus of promoting professionalism and preventing fitness to practise issues from arising. HCPC also need to continue to invest in the services offered to registrants. The consultation takes place in the context of keeping pace with the cost of inflation and the impact on operations and income when social workers in England transfer to Social Work England in 2019.

You can find more information on these proposals in the consultation document. It sets out where the fees are spent and why the increases are needed. It also provides information on financial performance, including the efficiencies already made.

You can download a copy of the consultation document together with our proposed amended Rules below. You will need to refer to the consultation document when responding.

You can find some frequently asked questions about the proposals on the HCPC website.
