How To Apply For HPCSA Certificate of Status (COS)?

In terms of section 23 of the Health Professions Act, 1974 (Act No. 56 of 1974) the Registrar may only issue an HPCSA Certificate of Status (COS) to registered practitioners and those that are voluntarily erased from the register.

** Certificate of Status will be issued to a Practitioner after submission of an affidavit that no criminal or unprofessional conduct proceedings are pending against him/her.
** The practitioner sends a written request to hpcsacgs@hpcsa.co.za with proof of payment and full details of where the certificate should be sent/posted or delivered to.
** To have certificate delivered by courier the following fee is payable for delivery in SA – R130.00 and for any overseas delivery R600.00 including vat, (delivery time approximately 7-10 days overseas).
** The certificate can also be send electronically as per understanding between certain authorities, GMC included.
** if no courier fee is paid the certificate will be sent by normal registered mail at no extra cost.
** Please provide postal/physical address for postage purposes.
** If a practitioners name was voluntary erased a certificate letter of good standing would be issued.

Please Note The Following:
** Practitioners are advised that Certificates of Status (COS) will be issued within 10 working days from date of request provided that payment is reflecting on the HPCSA account.
** If you are visiting the HPCSA to request a Certificate of Good Standing/Status, your request will only be finalised once we have received clearance from our legal department, therefore no certificate will be issued on the same day of submission of request.
** The Departments of Legal Services and Registrations will however strive to issue the certificates as quickly as possible.

How To Pay HPCSA Annual Renewal Fee?

** Council urges Practitioners to use the Online Portal to pay their Annual Fee.
** Council launched an Online Renewal Portal in March 2017 to enable practitioners to renew annual fees online.
** We urge practitioners to use the Online Renewals Portal. Should you encounter challenges using the portal please contact the Call Centre on 012 338 9300/1 or email them the screenshot of the error message on info@hpcsa.co.za.
** Once you have gone through the renewal process online, including making the appropriate payment, you will be able to view and/or print an electronic “QR coded” proof of payment of current annual fee renewal for 2020/21.
** This is official HPCSA proof that a practitioner is up to date with their annual fee payments.

Exemptions from payment of Annual Fees:
A health professional may be exempted from payment of the annual fee if he /she turns 71 before 31 March of the year. If he /she only turns 71 on 1 April or thereafter, he/she will be exempted from paying the annual fee from the following financial year.

If no ID number or copy of the ID document is on file, the health professional has to submit a copy thereof with the request to be exempted.

The following registers are exceptions and may apply for exemption if they turn 66 before 1 April according to the same principle as above:
** Environmental Health Practitioners

    It is so sad how the HPCSA staff are not doing their work. They do not respond to phone calls or emails sent. It is a disgrace with the type of service delivery that we get in this so-called free and democratic country. Additionally, we pay our fees diligently and this is the type of service that we get. I really want to know who can we contact to complain. I am so mad

    what is the cost of a COS without courier fees

  4. Fern Steyn

    Does anyone ever read these comments? I’d be shocked if anyone was assisted. I have been waiting forever for a COS letter. Fees paid and no letter. But rest assured the notice for annual fees went out on time.R1570 for what since no one returns emails or answers calls. Queries go unanswered. How do we report this organization fir non compliance

    Hi, I paid for my certificate of good standing on 13 December 2001 – R 730 for the COS for MP 0381454 Dr FJ Cronje and also added the courier fees to have it delivered to my practice address in Cape Town. Can you kindly advise when I can expect it to arrive? I need it rather urgently. Kind regards, Dr Frans J Cronje
