Kia Ora and welcome to the Chiropractic Board of New Zealand online.

The New ZealaChiropractic boardnd Chiropractic Board is the regulatory authority established by the Health Practitioners Competence Assurance Act 2003 to regulate the profession of chiropractic in New Zealand.  The principle purpose of this Act is to protect the health and safety of members of the public by providing for mechanisms to ensure that health practitioners are competent and fit to practise their professions.

The title of chiropractor is protected by this Act.  Only those health practitioners registered with the Chiropractic Board may use the title chiropractor and only chiropractors that hold a current Annual Practising Certificate may lawfully practice chiropractic in New Zealand.

To find out if your chiropractor holds a current Annual Practising Certificate please check our online Register.

The New Zealand Chiropractic Board trusts that registrants and members of the public will find the information contained on this website useful.
