About the AHPC

How we are run

 

We are governed by the Allied Health Professionals Council Act 2017.  This lays out our responsibilities and it gives us our legal authority to carry out these.  At present, the 18 professions that we regulate have been divided into six clusters.

The Council consists of:

  • One allied health professional from each cluster
  • A representative of the Ministry
  • A representative of the Prime Minister’s office
  • A representative of the Attorney- General’s office
  • A representative of the Ministry responsible for the subject of education
  • Two persons who are not allied health professionals

This council sets our strategy and policy and makes sure we are fulfilling our duties under the Allied Health Professionals council Act 2017
