SANC Annual Practicing Certificates and Fees 2024

According to the South African Nursing Council, SANC, the Annual Practising Certificate, APC is a document (issued on payment of an annual fee) to nursing and midwifery practitioners.

Every registration certificate issued by the Council is proof that the person to whom it is issued is registered in the capacity indicated on the certificate for a period of 12 months from the date on the certificate.  Thereafter, the practitioner must pay an annual fee and be issued an Annual Practising Certificate in order to continue to practise in that capacity.

The APC then serves as proof of registration for all qualifications appearing thereon.

  • DO indicate your Council reference number, payment type code ‘ANLFEES’ and full names when making payments to the Council.
  •  DO pay the correct amount depending on your category – not more or less – unless you have been requested to pay only part of the amount by the Council.
  • DO make sure that all electronic or other payments are made into the South African Nursing Council bank account.
  •  DO keep your bank deposit slip in case of queries.
  • DO NOT fax or post your proof of payment to the Council – unless you are requested to do so.
  • DO NOT pay at the bank if your personal details or address must be changed – in this case, post your remittance to Council.

NOTE: Request voluntary removal if you are not practising as a nurse, this means restoration fees will be reduced if re-registration is required.
