Third party verification arrangements
All providers in NSW are responsible for undertaking the necessary arrangements to ensure that they can provide evidence of third party verification (TPV) against the NSW Disability Service Standards or certification against one of the listed comparable standards.
Guide to Suitability
Providers are required to provide supports to participants consistent with the NDIA Terms of Business, NSW Quality and Safeguards Working Arrangements, and Guide to Suitability. It is important to read the entire Guide to Suitability, but please ensure you pay particular attention to the section specifically about NSW providers.
Sole practitioners and small consortia of Allied Health Professionals are required to comply with all relevant aspects of the NSW Transitional Quality Assurance and Safeguarding Framework in their clinical practice, however, may be exempted from the requirement to obtain Third Party Verification (TPV) when registering for ‘Early Intervention supports for early childhood’ (‘Early Childhood Supports’ in myplace).
To be eligible for the exemption, Allied Health professionals must:
- hold a relevant allied health qualification to practise in NSW;
- a minimum of 2 years practice experience in the provision of therapeutic support to children aged 0-6 years; and
- hold a relevant professional registration or professional association membership required to practice in NSW.
To obtain the exemption, Allied Health professionals must sign and submit an ‘Allied health Professional Declaration Statement’ (below) and submit this as part of the NDIS registration process.
