Everyone that applies to list on the HASANZ Register must fill in an online application form. In certain places, applicants must upload evidence which supports their application.

This page gives guidance for HFESNZ members.  More information can be found on HFESNZ's website.  

If you have any questions about these requirements, please contact: Kim Pearson [email protected] or Leanne Hunter [email protected].


Professional details

Applicants must enter:

  • their association name, their association membership number and their occupation/profession.  
  • details of their qualifications and any other professional memberships that they hold, and upload evidence of these.

Evidence requirements 

Only current Certified Professional Members (CNZHFE) are eligible for listing on the HASANZ Register. If you are not a Certified Professional Member, apply for membership.  

HFESNZ's Certification Assessors will review your HASANZ Register application details and uploaded evidence to ensure it meets HFESNZ requirements. Your HASANZ application should reflect evidence already submitted for the HFESNZ Certification/Recertification process, though you may wish to submit (via the HASANZ Register application) additional evidence specifically in support of your Register application.  Please follow this guidance for the strongest type of evidence with your application.

For claims that HFESNZ is unable to verify via evidence, or is not the correct professional organisation to verify competence, we will use the right to remove your claim to this expertise from your HASANZ Register application. Please refer to 'Accepted HFE skills/service types for the HASANZ Register'. In some cases we may confer with other organisations that you may be a member of to verify competence in additional skills not on this list.


Insurance coverage

All applicants must confirm that the work they do is covered by professional indemnity insurance and public liability insurance and upload evidence of this. Statutory liability insurance is recommended but not mandatory.

Evidence requirements

Please provide copies of your insurance documentation to verify that you hold professional indemnity and public liability insurances sufficient for the work that you carry out, and that these are current.


Service offering

Applicants can select the industries they have experience working in, the locations they can offer service in, and the sizes of business they have experience working with.

Applicants must then select at least one option from any one of the four lists of register categories to indicate their service offering - the services they provide, or the subject matter experience they have. The four options are: general services, specialist services, specific injury or illness experience, specific subject matter experience (area of concern). Applicants must upload evidence for each category they select, according to the requirements of their member association.

Evidence requirements

Your HASANZ application should reflect evidence already submitted for the HFESNZ Certification/Recertification process, though you may wish to submit (via the HASANZ Register application) additional evidence specifically in support of your Register application. Please pay attention to evidence that backs each of your claims for industry experience, and aim to provide the strongest type of evidence with your application.
