NDIA Provider Registration – the ACT Government  Role   

Information  about  NDIA provider registration is  available on the NDIS website at: Link

Providers  seeking  to register to deliver NDIS disability services in the ACT  should  contact the ACT Government’s Human Services’  Registrar  (HSR) for  assessment against the ACT safeguard  framework.

Please  contact  the registrar by email at or by phone on  (02)  62054608.

Once  you  have provided initial contact information and let the HSR know which  NDIS  service and support clusters you intend to deliver under the  NDIS, the HSR will  let you know what further evidence you need to  provide in order for your  organisation’s compliance to  be assessed.

Depending  on  the number and type of services for which you are seeking registration,  this  process may take approximately two to three weeks from receipt  of all required  information. The Office of the Human Services  Registrar will work with your  organisation to help you demonstrate  capacity to comply with the quality and  safeguarding  requirements.  

The HSR will advise you via email of its  recommendation regarding  registration. You should attach that email to your  application to  the NDIA in lieu of a 'certificate of registration' from the  ACT.

More  information  about the role of the ACT Human Service Registrar and how  Safeguards  and Quality are monitored in the ACT under the NDIS is available  at  :
