If a TPA is suspended for not meeting their administrative requirements they will be required to pay a TPA Reinstatement Fee (see clause 2.2 h). This fee, set by the Committee of Management, will be published on the application form and will be applied from 1 November 2018.The TPA Reinstatement Fee has been introduced due to the administration time required when some TPAs opt not to meet their obligations, but then comply after deadlines, for example:
– pay BDAV Membership Fee by 30 June;
– supply a current Professional Indemnity Certificate of Certificate;
– meet the annual renewal requirements by 1 November including CPD and accreditation fee payment;
– comply with other AAO requests.
