The NDIS Commission will be responsible for provider registration in Victoria, Queensland, Tasmania, the Australian Capital Territory (ACT) and the Northern Territory (NT) from 1 July 2019. The NDIA is working with the NDIS Commission to ensure a smooth transition for providers currently registered with the NDIA.

The NDIA will continue to receive all new registration group applications for providers in Victoria, Queensland, Tasmania, the ACT and the NT until 30 June 2019 through the NDIS myplace provider portal. However, providers need to be aware that the registration groups listed below also require approval by state governments, in accordance with their respective quality and safeguard standards, before the NDIA is able to finalise the registration request.

From 1 March 2019, the Victorian, Tasmanian and ACT governments have advised they will no longer assess the following registration groups against their quality and safeguard standards:

  • Assist-Life Stage, Transition
  • Assist Personal Activities
  • Personal Activities High
  • Behaviour Support
  • Daily Tasks/Shared Living
  • Development-Life Skills
  • Group/Centre Activities
  • Participate Community
  • Plan Management
  • Support Co-ordination
  • Early Childhood Supports
  • Therapeutic Supports (Tasmania and ACT providers only)
  • Accommodation / Tenancy (ACT providers only)
  • Assist Access/Maintain Employment (ACT providers only)
  • Specialised Supported Employment (ACT providers only)

Providers planning to apply for these registration groups in Vic, Tas and the ACT must begin the process with their relevant state or territory government before 1 March 2019. Further information about how to contact your state or territory government is available on the NDIS website.

If providers in Victoria, Tasmania and the ACT apply after 1 March 2019 to begin the first step to gain state approval, the Victorian, Tasmanian and ACT state governments have advised the NDIA that they will be unable to provide state approval. Without this approval, the NDIA will be unable to progress the application further.
