Under section 9 of the Chiropractors Registration Ordinance, the Council shall not register a person as a registered chiropractor unless –
- he has passed such examination in chiropractic and other subjects and has received such training and experience as the Council may accept, either generally or in a particular case; and
- he is not the subject of an inquiry conducted by an inquiry committee or of a disciplinary order under Part IV which precludes him from being registered under section 9 of this Ordinance; and
- he satisfies the Council by declaration in writing that he is competent to practise as a chiropractor; and
- he is a fit and proper person to be registered.
The Council may refuse to register a person as a registered chiropractor who-
- has been convicted in Hong Kong or elsewhere of any offence which may bring the profession of chiropractic into disrepute; or
- has committed misconduct or neglect in a professional respect.
Where the Council is satisfied by an applicant that he is competent to practise chiropractic and the Council is later satisfied that the person is not competent to practise chiropractic, the Council may refer the matter to an inquiry committee which shall deal with it as if it were a complaint under section 17(1) of this Ordinance.
