Disruption to web services
Power to the building the Council occupies will be cut-off for some time this weekend (28/29 November - New Zealand time) while some work is carried out on the building. This means that our server will be shut down. This web site is located elsewhere and will display normally for functions that do not access the server. You will be able to move around the website and access the information pages. However, you will not be able to apply for registration, apply for a practising certificate, search the Register, or log into your account. The Council apologises for any inconvenience and will restore this functionality as soon as it can.
