Consult Naming Policy

15 Jan, 2024

This consultation period is from Monday 15 January to Wednesday 7 February 2024.

Te Poari Ringa Hangarau Iraruke | Medical Radiation Technologists Board (the Board) is undertaking a review of the practitioner’s Naming Policy. 

The policy describes how the Board may publish the name of a practitioner following an order or direction made about the practitioner under the Health Practitioners Competence Assurance Act (2003) (the HPCA Act). The policy outlines factors that the Board may take into consideration when it is deciding if it is going to name an individual.

While the Board's current Naming Policy has served the profession and the public to date, we need to make sure it is still appropriate and remains fit for purpose.

Medical Radiation Technology practitioners are a crucial part of the health workforce in Aotearoa New Zealand. As registered health professionals under the HPCA Act the Board must ensure the Naming Policy is fair and reasonable within the decision-making framework and serves the public interest.

The Board invites you to read and consider our document - Consultation: Proposed changes to the Naming Policy for practitioners.

Please share your feedback with us by emailing your written responses to The Board looks forward to hearing from you.

The consultation closes at 5pm on Wednesday 7 February 2024
