Commencement of NDIS Worker Screening Posted: Thursday 2 July 2020

Commencement of NDIS Worker Screening

The Commonwealth has now amended the National Disability Insurance Scheme (Practice Standards—Worker Screening) Rules 2018 to commence nationally-consistent worker screening for the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) from 1 February 2021. Current screening arrangements will remain in place until commencement of NDIS worker screening.

While it was originally intended that NDIS worker screening would commence from 1 July 2020, the impacts of COVID-19 have meant it will be delayed.

On 18 June 2020, new legislation was introduced into the Queensland Parliament to implement NDIS worker screening in Queensland.

Information about current worker screening obligations can be found at www.ndiscommission.gov.au/providers/worker-screening or www.workerscreening.communities.qld.gov.au
