24 May 2004
To all: Nursing Education Institutions
Increase in Price of Postage and Additional Requirements when Purchasing Distinguishing Devices at the Counter
A copy of the new application form for distinguishing devices, with increased postage and additional requirements when purchasing distinguishing devices at the Council counter, is attached.
The additional requirements when purchasing distinguishing devices at the Council counter are:
|The person who purchases the devices at the counter must present his/her own ID document for verification by the cashier. For this purpose only, Council will accept an ID Book, credit card type driver’s licence, or passport as a valid ID document. Distinguishing devices will not be supplied to a person who cannot produce the necessary ID DOCUMENT.|
|If you send someone else to purchase distinguishing devices on your behalf, you must send a letter with him/her indicating the full names and ID number of the person authorized by you to receive the distinguishing devices on your behalf. Distinguishing devices will not be supplied to a person who cannot produce the necessary LETTER OF AUTHORIZATION.|
These changes (and the new form) are effective from 01 June 2004.
It is extremely important that this information is brought to the attention of all nurses and midwives to avoid problems that might otherwise occur when purchasing distinguishing devices. Your cooperation in this regard is greatly appreciated.
Please destroy or dispose off all old forms in your possession.
Extra copies of the form are obtainable from the Council on request. Please make telephonic arrangements beforehand if you require large quantities.
Please contact Ms M. Mulder at telephone (012) 420 1080 for any enquiries.
