Please contact the NDIS Commission at NDIS Practitioners if you have questions about your application. Do not notify the department, in writing, within 7 days of a material change in circumstances while you are in possession of an authorization from the NDIS or you have requested an authorization from the NDIS.

The NDIS Commission regulates the NDIS market, provides national coherence, promotes safety and quality services, resolves problems and identifies areas for improvement. The website of the NDIS Quality and Safeguards Commission contains quick reference guides for using worker selection portals (external link). The NDIS Worker Selection Control (NDIS Check) is an important part of the Framework that works with other components to support the dignity, safety and well-being of NDIS participants.
The NDIS Check is a way to ensure that people who work with NDIS participants do not pose an unacceptable risk to participants. Once you have completed your request, the provider or participant you designate will receive a notification from the NDIS Commission stating that they have 30 days to verify your request.
