The Operational Policy Manual is a document for authorised officers and staff of regulatory authorities to support them to apply the Education and Care Services National Law and Regulations consistently across all states and territories. It does not include information about assessment and rating. 
The manual is not legal advice. However, it guides the regulatory authorities when they are interpreting and applying the National Law and Regulations. It is not a substitute for the law.

The Regulatory Authority will use the Education and Care Services National Law and National Regulations. Then, depending on the decision that needs to be made, they may draw on a range of other resources.

For instance, the Assessment and Rating chapter of the Operational Policy Manual for Regulatory Authorities or first tier review guidelines. 
Regulatory Authorities may also use jurisdiction specific resources. For instance, a Regulatory Authority may have particular protocols in place about when to notify other local authorities.
