The Medical Board of Australia’s revised PII registration standard came into effect on 1 January 2016. The revised standard states that medical practitioners with professional indemnity insurance must have “appropriate retroactive cover for otherwise uncovered matters arising from prior practice undertaken in Australia” by 1 October 2016. 

What do you need to do?
  • Visit medicalboard.gov.au/News/2015-12-01-revised-pii-standard.aspx for details on the changes.
  • Ensure you have appropriate indemnity cover for your current practice and any prior practice. Your Certificate of Currency includes your current retroactive cover – you can obtain a copy via our Member Online Services.
