If you wish to remain registered under the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS), you’ll need to renew your Certificate of Registration every three years before your registration period ends.
NDIS Renewal may commence six months prior to the expiry date and no later than three months prior.
The re-registration cycle is a thorough process made up of Stage 1 and Stage 2 audits. The Stage 1 audit is an off-site, desk-top audit that determines your readiness for certification. This is followed by a Stage 2 audit, usually within three months.
Service providers offering registration groups or services that require a Certification audit will undergo the Stage 2 audit on-site. In contrast, NDIS Providers offering lower risk registration groups or services have just one audit, called a Verification audit that is conducted offsite .
Both Certification and Verification audits are performed by an NDIS approved quality auditor who will examine the evidence you provide against the relevant modules of the NDIS Practice Standards.
