Section 2: Applications and Approvals
Provider and service approvals
There are two main approval processes:
- Provider approval – a person may apply to obtain a provider approval, which is ongoing and recognised nationally. A person who has applied for a provider approval may also apply for a service approval to operate one or more services.
- Service approval – each service operated by an approved provider requires service approval. Service approvals relate to the individual site/premises and the type of care provided.
This section explains how applications are made and processed.
