RAC providers who support NDIS participants are now required to meet the obligations of the National Disability Insurance Scheme Act 2013 (NDIS Act) and the NDIS (Provider Registration and Practice Standards) Rules 2018. As part of these obligations and their condition of registration, affected RAC providers will need to undergo a third-party audit against the NDIS Practice Standards.
Previously, RAC providers supporting NDIS participants did not have to be registered with the NDIS Commission. This exemption was due to expire on 30 June 2020, however, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the exemption was extended to 30 November 2020. From 1 December 2020, those RACs are now considered Registered NDIS Providers.
All RAC providers delivering support to NDIS participants will require registration and those that are currently already delivering support automatically registered from 1 December 2020.
It is important to understand where your organisation is at in meeting its current and transitional obligations as a Registered NDIS Provider and be aware of the dual systems you will be working within to ensure the highest quality and safety of care and support.
