NDIS Quality and Safeguards Commission and phasing in of providers

On 1 July 2018, the NDIS Quality and Safeguards Commission will commence in South Australia and will take over responsibility for the registration of all NDIS providers.

Organisations already registered to be NDIS providers will have their information automatically transferred from the NDIA to the Commission, and don’t need to do anything at this stage.

The Department of Human Services is working with the Commonwealth to ensure registered providers will have registration requirements phased in, and will be advised directly when they should start their registration renewal.  It is expected that there will be no unnecessary burden placed on providers.

Please ensure your details and registration groups are updated so that data received from the NDIA is accurate. It is also important for you to think specifically about any current applications for a new registration in South Australia. This will need to be completed prior to 1 July for it to transfer to the NDIS Commission.

New providers wishing to begin providing supports and services in South Australia before the NDIS Commission commences operations on 1 July will need to contact the state government.

Further information about transitioning to the new arrangements under the NDIS Commission, including registration and more targeted information in SA, will be provided closer to 1 July.

The Department of Social Services (DSS) has recently added a new Easy Read fact sheet to the current fact sheets for participants and providers about the NDIS Quality and Safeguards Commission (NDIS Commission).

You can learn more about the NDIS Commission on the DSS website.
