The ECU are implementing several changes to our Assessment and Rating (A&R) processes in 2023. The changes are in line with a revised national approach and seek to make quality assessment and rating more effective.

The changes include;

  • a reduced notice period of 1 to 5 days for most A&R visits from late March 2023.
  • from January 2023, an increased use of partial reassessments for services with a current quality rating under the 2018 National Quality Standard (NQS).

ACECQA has released an information sheet which was developed in collaboration with all governments and it includes further details about these changes.

The ECU will share additional information about what these changes will look like in Tasmania, in the coming months.
