The register of disability service providers identifies the disability service providers that are required to comply with the conditions and provisions of the Disability Act 2006.
In most cases, the requirement to apply for registration as a disability service provide will be stipulated as a condition of funding.
Entities that apply for initial registration under the Act must demonstrate their capacity to comply with the Human Services Standards (gazetted as Department of Health and Human Services Standards). This is done through our online self-assessment tool.
Registered organisations are required to demonstrate compliance with the standards at the time of renewal of registration.
Service providers must also undertake an independent review within 12 months of initial registration.
The registration policies found in related resources provide important legislative and policy requirements for disability service providers.
