Notifying a change of governance

Section 31 of the Health and Disability Services (Safety) Act 2001 requires certified providers to notify the Director-General of Health any change in membership of the governing body, partners or trustees of the service provider.

Please use the Notification of change of governance form (Word, 57 KB) to advise HealthCERT of these changes.

Advising your district health board

If you hold a contract with your local district health board (DHB), you should also send a copy of the completed form to your DHB Portfolio Manager.

Further information

The Section 31 Reporting Guidelines (Word, 68 KB) provide more information about notifications under Section 31 of the Act. If you have any questions, please contact HealthCERT on 0800 113 813 or at certification@moh.govt.nz.
