1.8 Exercise of powers by another regulatory authority
[ National Law, Section 42 ] The regulatory authority of another jurisdiction may exercise all its powers and functions in relation to a provider approval, if the approved provider operates an education and care service in its jurisdiction.
The regulatory authority may only amend, suspend or cancel a provider approval after consulting with the regulatory authority of each jurisdiction where the approved provider operates an education and care service. This includes the regulatory authority which granted the provider approval. Failure to consult other regulatory authorities does not affect the validity of the decision made.
Cancellation or suspension of a provider approval in one state or territory applies to all states and territories.
