1 Check you meet the registration standard
You can only join the HASANZ Register if:
- you belong to a professional association that is a Full Member of HASANZ
- you meet the registration standard set by your professional association.
Please contact your member association and check you meet their registration standard before applying to list on the HASANZ Register.
2 Gather your evidence documents
When you complete your application, you will be asked to provide evidence of your qualifications and experience that are relevant to the various categories under which you wish to list.
Your member association will use this evidence to verify that you meet the competency requirements for the HASANZ Register. Any uploaded evidence documents you provide are held in a secure area of the system and are not able to be accessed by the public.
Check the specific evidence requirements for your member association before starting the online application process.
Login and start completing your HASANZ Register application.
You will be asked to enter an email address - this is the address to which your profile is linked - it may not necessarily be your business-facing email address.
You will then be sent a security code by email that you can use to access the Register system. Each time you want to access your individual profile information in the secure area of the HASANZ Register you will be issued with a different security code.
4 Complete the online application form and submit it
Complete the online application form and upload the relevant evidence documents required by your member association. The system will save the information you enter automatically every two minutes. You can save your application part-way through if you don't want to complete it in one go. Simply use your email address to access your dashboard in the secure area of the HASANZ Register - you will be issued with a different security code each time you do.
Once you have completed the online application form, click "submit" to send your application for approval.

6 Profile assessment
Once you have paid your fees your application will be assessed by selected senior members of your member association. During this process, they may ask you questions through the Register system or may ask you to provide more information to help them assess your application. Once your profile is approved by your member association, HASANZ also does a high level review of your application to check for any manifest errors.
7 Approval and publication
Once your profile has been approved by both your member association and HASANZ, it will be published on the live HASANZ Register system. This means that your profile can be viewed by HASANZ Register users.
8 Your "HASANZ Registered" certificate
Once your profile has been published HASANZ will send your HASANZ-Registered certificate which is valid for 12 months. You will also receive the "HASANZ-Registered" quality mark and associated brand collateral via email.
You can make changes to your profile at any time - simply login to the HASANZ Register and select Edit my profile. Changes to your contact details will be published immediately. Changes to your skills and experience will require verification by your member association before they can take effect.
10 Annual renewal
Your registration is valid for one year and will expire 12 months after the date that your profile is first published on the HASANZ Register. You will be sent reminders to pay next year's registration fee 30 days and then one day before your current registration expires.
