Every three years from when you join (or rejoin) the register you will need to renew your registration by revalidating.
Your revalidation application is due on the first day of the month in which your registration expires. For example, if your renewal date is 30 April, your revalidation application due date will be 1 April.
Submitting ahead of the 1st allows us enough time to process your application and contact you should we require any further information.
You can find out your renewal date by checking your NMC Online account. If you do not have an NMC Online account, you can create one.
If you require more time to submit your application you can apply for an extension by logging onto your NMC Online account and following the steps on screen.
When can I start my revalidation application?
We'll send you a reminder 60 days before your revalidation application is due. This is called your 'Registration Renewal Notice'.
You can then submit your application through your NMC Online account at any point during the 60 days.
You will need to meet the requirements of revalidation before you can make your revalidation application.
We recommend that you work towards meeting the revalidation requirements throughout the three year registration period, so you're prepared when your application is due.
When do I pay my fee?
Every year you also need to retain your registration by paying an annual registration fee.
If you have a Direct Debit already set up you will not need to change this and the Direct Debit will be collected at the usual time – even if the Direct Debit date is after your revalidation application date.
If you do not have a Direct Debit set up, you must ensure you pay your fee before your revalidation application date.
