(1) The Board may refuse to register a person who would otherwise be entitled to full registration if:(a) the Board is of the opinion, following an inquiry under Schedule 1, that the person is not competent to practise chiropractic or suffers from an impairment, or(b) the person has been convicted of or made the subject of a criminal finding for an offence, either in or outside the State, and the Board is of the opinion that the circumstances of the offence are such as to render the person unfit in the public interest to practise chiropractic, or(c) the person’s registration under a health registration Act has been cancelled or suspended because of conduct that would (if the person were a registered chiropractor) authorise cancellation or suspension of the person’s registration under this Act, or(d) the person’s registration or certification under a chiropractors registration law has been cancelled or suspended because of conduct that would (if it occurred in New South Wales and the person were a registered chiropractor) authorise cancellation or suspension of the person’s registration under this Act.(2) As an alternative to refusing to register a person under subsection (1), the Board may grant the person registration subject to conditions if the Board considers that refusal of registration is not warranted and that the person should be granted registration subject to appropriate conditions.(3) Conditions of registration may relate to the duration of registration, the aspects of the practice in which the person may be engaged, and any other matters, as the Board thinks appropriate.(4) In this section:
chiropractors registration law means any law of a place outside the State that provides for the registration or certification of chiropractors.
