Fees ( Part 3).
17.— (1) A person applying for registration under this Part shall, at the time of applying, pay the specified fee to the registration body and, in addition, as a condition of continuing to be registered, pay a specified annual fee on a date as may be specified by the registration body.
(2) Where the Registrar has twice sent a notice by prepaid registered post to a registered professional’s address as given in the register, requesting payment of the annual fee the Registrar may, if the person has not paid the fee within 2 months after sending the second notice, remove the person’s name from the register and thereupon shall send a notice by prepaid registered post informing the person that he or she is no longer registered.
(3) Notwithstanding subsection (2), the Registrar may, in cases of verified hardship, waive the requirement to pay a fee under this section, direct that a fee of an amount lesser than the specified amount may be paid for the purposes of this section or remit a fee paid under this section, in whole or in part.
(4) Where a person’s name has been removed from the register for non-payment of fees and the person pays the outstanding fees together with any other specified fees, the Registrar shall re-enter the person’s name in the register and it shall be treated as having been re-entered on the date it was removed.
