ABSTRACT

In Australia the applied practice of psychology is regulated by the Psychology Board of Australia (the Board). The General Registration Standard for psychologists took effect on 1 July 2010 pursuant to the Health Practitioner Regulation National Law (the National Law). Parties interested in the process and application of the National Law relating to psychology and general registration are referred to the Board for additional information (Psychology Board of Australia, 2010). Those interested in broad information regarding the nature of psychology education and regulation in Australia are similarly referred to Kavanagh (2015).
