REGISTRATION AS REGISTERED OPTOMETRIST WITH MOC
As legislated by Optical Act 1991 and Optical Regulations 1994, all practising optometrists must register with MOC. For new Malaysian optometry graduates, please check with MOC to confirm your institution of higher learning is recognized by Ministry of Health. If your institution is recognized by the government, you can proceed to register with MOC using Form 7. Once registered, you need to apply for Annual Practicing Certificate (APC) and Photo Name Certificate (PNC). APC needs to be renewed annually before 1st of December of respective year. Meanwhile, PNC can only be renewed for every 3 years.
