Prohibition orders

Orders can prohibit a health practitioner or organisation from providing health services.

These orders can prohibit part, or all, of a health service for a set period of time or permanently. Interim orders of up to 12 weeks can also be made.

Orders are only made against general health service providers, meaning those not regulated by the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA), and only if the Commissioner believes they've breached the general code of conduct and pose an unacceptable risk to the public.

Prohibition orders issued in Victoria, New South Wales, Queensland and South Australia are prosecutable across all these states.
