New Registration System
Scope and Status
The ECSA Council has approved new policies and standards for registration that will be phased in at different times for the various categories of registration. Implementation of the changes is a complex process. Applicants for various categories are affected by changes at different times. This page identifies the main changes and the times at which changes have or will come into effect. This will be updated as the programme moves forward.
This version was issued on 3 May 2013.
Types of Change
ECSA has twelve categories of registration as well as various registrations mechanisms under international agreements. In addition, certain applicants must apply for educational evaluation. The two types of changes are being introduced into categories at different times. From 1 April 2013, only the following classes of applicants are affected:
Applicants in these categories are advised to consult the Registration Process Page.
In view of the complexity of the changes, a Step-by-step Guide to applying for registration has been developed. The various documents needed by different classes of applicants are available via hyperlinks the guide. This guide details the current process (and options within the process, where these exist) for each category of registration.
