The new CPD Framework was launched on 01 June 2021, and revised in March 2024.

It articulates the standards and rules governing the CPD process from CPD Year 2021/22 onward.

Registrants are encouraged to familiarise themselves with the new Framework and the requirements for CPD cycles and portfolios moving forward, and to review the Annual CPD Portfolio – a Guide to Completion Submission and Assessment

Early CPD Requirements

Early CPD requirements will apply to those applicants who fall into the following categories:

  • a pharmacist applying for restoration to the Register, having previously been removed from the Register for non-compliance with the CPD Framework;
  • a pharmacist applying to re-join the Register, having voluntarily withdrawn from the Register during a previous CPD year but having failed to submit a CPD portfolio for that year;
  • a pharmacist applying to rejoin the Register, having not been registered as a pharmacists within the last 12 months.

Please review the CPD Framework  for early CPD requirements.

Dual-Registration: Registrants who are ‘dual-registered’ (that is, registered with more than one pharmacy regulatory body) must comply with the CPD requirements of each registering body.

Preparation for portfolio submissions – Annual Portfolio, Reassessment 1 & Reassessment 2: Registrants are advised to review the Annual CPD Portfolio – a Guide to Completion Submission and Assessment and to review their cycles against the Consensus Guidance and Feedback Statements.
