37. Temporary registration

    (1) A person who is in Western Australia or proposes to come to Western Australia and who satisfies a member of the Board that

    (a) he is a person of good character;

    (b) he proposes to engage in practice in the State as a psychologist in special circumstances and that hardship would be occasioned by any delay in the grant or registration; and

    (c) he possesses qualifications and experience appropriate to that purpose,

    may, upon application in the prescribed form and on payment of the prescribed fee, be granted by that member of the Board a temporary registration for that purpose and may be issued with a certificate of temporary registration, and the issue of any such certificate shall be notified by that member to the Board as soon as is practicable.

    (2) Where, on the consideration of an application for registration, the Board is of the opinion that it would grant registration if satisfactory evidence were produced, and that it is likely that the requisite evidence will be produced, the Board may issue a certificate of temporary registration.

    (3) The Board may grant temporary registration on an honorary basis for specified periods to persons of eminence within the field of psychology, so recognised by the Board, who may visit the State to teach or demonstrate methods and techniques of psychology.

    (4) A certificate of temporary registration has effect, unless earlier terminated by the Board, for such period not exceeding 3 months as is specified therein but may be renewed by the Board for a period or periods of not more than 12 months in respect of each such application.

    (5) Temporary registration granted under this section may be made subject to such limitations and restrictions upon the practice of psychology by the applicant as the Board in any particular case specifies and such limitations and restrictions shall be indicated on the corresponding certificate of registration.

    (6) The Board may at any time cancel any temporary registration issued or renewed under this section, or may vary any limitation or restriction to which it was made subject.

    (7) Every person in respect of whom temporary registration is granted shall, while the registration remains in force and so long as he does not infringe the restrictions or limitations to which it was made subject, be deemed to be registered as a psychologist under this Act, and his name and such other particulars as the Board considers to be material shall be entered in the Register as a person to whom a temporary registration has been granted.
