Disbandment of the Inactive File

The NMBI issued a public consultation process regarding the disbandment of the Inactive File. The Inactive File was established in May 1993 as an administrative mechanism to manage nurses and midwives who weren’t in active practice in Ireland. There was and is no legislative basis for the Board to maintain the Inactive File. Currently there are approx. 30,000 names on this file. Under the Nurses and Midwives Act 2011 a new provision has been introduced to enable registrants to voluntarily remove themselves from the Register (section 50 (1)). New obligations have been introduced for registrants and accordingly, the NMBI must regularise this “Inactive File”.
