The National Disability Worker Screening Check is coming.
Please note that from the 1st of February 2021, the National Disability Worker Screening Check will be enforced, and both Victoria and Queensland have mandated a “no clearance, no start” approach, meaning that, without a check, you will be prohibited from being employed or otherwise engaged by an NDIS provider, unless you are subject to a transitional arrangement*. At this time, we expect that this check may replace requirements for some checks currently listed above.

*See more about transitional arrangements here: https://www.ndiscommission.gov.au/providers/worker-screening/interimarrangements.

**A certified copy is a copy of an original document that has been authorised as being a true copy of the original document. http://www.border.gov.au/Lega/Lega/Form//Immi-FAQs/who-can-certify-a-copy-of-a-document
