The Australia-wide National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is administered by the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA), an independent Commonwealth statutory agency.
The Department of Communities (Communities) in WA is responsible for ensuring that NDIS providers in WA comply with State quality and safeguarding requirements until 1 December 2020.
On 1 December 2020 service providers wishing to provide NDIS supports will be able to register with the NDIS Quality and Safeguards Commission, the Commonwealth agency responsible for regulating NDIS service providers across all other jurisdictions of Australia.
Existing Communities Disability Services Provider Panel registered providers will automatically transition to the NDIS Quality and Safeguards Commission on 1 December 2020.
Quality Standards related to Registration on the Disability Service Provider Panel
The Quality System in WA is based on the National Standards for Disability Services (NSDS). The NSDS help to promote and drive a nationally consistent approach to improving the quality of disability services.
