The NDIS Commission is an independent Commonwealth body that has been established as part of the national approach to quality and safeguards. The NDIS Commission will implement the NDIS Quality and Safeguarding Framework (external) which is designed to ensure high quality supports and safe environments for all NDIS participants.
Yes. The NDIS Commission is an independent Commonwealth body and is separate to the NDIA.
The NDIA will continue to deliver the NDIS and empower people with disability to choose and achieve their goals through individualised participant plans. This includes working in partnership with providers to connect with and support participants, and operate within the NDIS.
There are existing mechanisms in place to enable independent review of decisions made.
If you have a pending application for registration as a provider in NSW and/or SA, or you are an existing provider applying to add new registration groups in these states, you should complete all registration requirements as soon as possible.
From the 1 July 2018 the NDIA will no longer have the authority to approve applications for registration groups for NSW and SA providers.
Only completed registration group applications that have been approved by the NDIA before 1 July will be transferred and recognised by the NDIS Commission. If your application is not completed and approved, you will need to begin a new registration application for those registration groups with the NDIS Commission.
