Apply for NDIS registration under current HSQF process by 1 April
Important information has been released for providers who wish to apply for NDIS registration under the current Human Services Quality Framework (HSQF) process, including a registration process flowchart.
The NDIS Quality and Safeguards Commission (NDIS Commission) will commence in Queensland on 1 July 2019, and will replace Queensland’s existing quality and safeguarding functions, which includes the process for NDIS provider registration.
This means there is limited time for NDIS registration prior to 1 July for providers who are:
- intending to become a NDIS registered provider to deliver prescribed services;
- already registered but wish to expand their service offering to deliver; or
- are currently in the process of registering and have an application ‘pending state approval’.
Under the current NDIS registration process to deliver prescribed services in Queensland, providers must obtain Queensland assessment and approval under the Human Services Quality Framework (HSQF) before the NDIA can approve and confirm their registration.
To ensure there is sufficient time to process applications, the department will cease accepting applications for HSQF assessment and approval from 1 April 2019. If your application for HSQF assessment and approval is not submitted by this date, you will need to wait and submit a new NDIS provider registration application to the NDIS Commission after 1 July 2019.
We encourage providers who wish to apply under the current process to start and/or complete the NDIS registration process as soon as possible. NDIS providers already registered with the NDIA will have their Certificate of Registration automatically transferred to the NDIS Commission from 1 July 2019.
For more information on prescribed registration groups and how to demonstrate compliance with Queensland standards, refer to the HSQF Factsheet and the NDIS Provider Registration Guide to Suitability.
More information is available on the NDIS Commission website.
