Public Consultation on new Registration Rules

The Medical Council, having made Registration Rules and Rules Specifying Pre-Registration Exams and Exemptions, in 2009, in accordance with section 11 of the Medical Practitioners Act 2007 ("the Act"), has drafted a number of amendments to these Rules.

The Rules define the manner in which medical practitioners may be registered in the Republic of Ireland and, if adopted by Council, will replace both the Registration Rules and Rules Specifying Pre-Registration Exams and Exemptions.

The Medical Council is inviting you to submit your views on these draft amendments to the rules. Following this consultation process and consideration of submissions received, the draft amendments to the Rules will be reviewed and finalised. Please note that all submissions are subject to the provisions of the Freedom of Information Acts 1997-2003.

Submissions on the draft rules must reach the Council by close of business on 14th September 2010.
