Protecting the public and
guiding the professions


Registration with the HPCSA is a pre-requisite for professional practice and it is also a legal requirement to keep all personal details up to date at all times.


As an autonomous body the HPCSA receives no grants or subsidies from government or any other source. It is totally funded by the fees it receives from registered persons representing the professions under its jurisdiction. Each Professional Board, however, administers its own budget in a transparent manner from the funds allocated by the HPCSA, based on fees paid by various professions to Council. Such fees are not necessarily uniform but depend on the actual cost of running the Board; on the levy paid by the Professional Boards to Council towards a stabilisation fund from which Council can allocate money in contingency circumstances, and on the cost of the running of the HPCSA.
