Completing your notification of practice form

Help with completing your form

The notification of practice (NoP) form needs to be submitted every three years. If you only need to pay the annual retention fee this year, please do not complete the form.

Fill in your form on NMC Online

In order to complete your NoP form, please log into your NMC Online account.

If you have received your renewal pack and your expiry date is from July 2014 onwards, this will include an activation code which will allow you to access NMC Online.

Filling in the NoP form on NMC Online is the most efficient way of renewing your registration. Your record will be updated within 24 hours.

If you choose to fill in the paper NoP form we included in your renewal pack (or if you download it from our website), please be aware that this can take up to five days to process once we have received it.

Filling in your form and returning by post

Before completing your NoP form, you may find it helpful to read the instruction notes and the Prep handbook.

If the form is not marked correctly, it will be rejected and we will send you another form to complete. This will delay and possibly lapse your registration, which may affect your ability to work or practise.

The most common reason for rejection is a cross ( X ) not being placed in both boxes indicating that you have met the Prep standards for learning activity and practice.

If you need to declare a caution or conviction, mark a cross in the 'yes' box of step 2 and 'no' if you do not need to declare. Please note that your NoP form will not be accepted without this section being completed appropriately which will delay your registration being updated.

If you do not want to renew your registration, please move directly to Step 4 and sign and date the declaration. Do not send in your fee if you do not want to renew your registration for another year.

Please make sure your form and fee reach us by the 15th of the month you are due to expire to ensure that your registration is updated without risk of lapsing.

Please send your form to:
