Applications for registration after the transitional period

4.—(1) An application for registration made after the transitional period shall be made to the Registrar in writing in Form A and signed by the applicant and accompanied by the fee prescribed by paragraph 1 of Schedule 2.

(2) The applicant shall provide the following in relation to any such application–

(a)a reference as to good character from a person unrelated to the applicant by birth or marriage, being a person of good standing in the community who has known the applicant for at least four years and who is acceptable to the Registrar (including a solicitor, accountant, bank manager, Justice of the Peace, Minister of the Church, Imam, Rabbi, or similar religious official who appears to the Registrar to be appropriate);

(b)subject to paragraph (3), a report as to the physical and mental health of the applicant meeting the requirements of that paragraph;

(c)evidence of the applicant having a recognised qualification comprising the document conferring it or an original certificate issued by the institution granting it that it has conferred the qualification on the applicant;

(d)so far as relevant, all the other particulars specified in form A; and

(e)such other information or documents as the Registrar may reasonably require for the purposes of determining the application.

(3) The report given under paragraph (2)(b) shall be given by the applicant’s medical practitioner, who must not be related to the applicant by birth or marriage and must have known the applicant for a period of at least four years; but if the Registrar is satisfied that because these conditions cannot be met, no such report can be given, the Registrar may satisfy himself as to the mental and physical health of the applicant (so far as he considers it necessary to do so having regard to any other information available under Rule 5(2) or examination required under Rule 5(3)) by a report given by a registered medical practitioner who, in giving the report, relies on the medical records of the applicant made by registered medical practitioners of whom the applicant was a patient (or by partners of such practitioners) for a period in aggregate of at least four years.
