    Moving to unannounced re-accreditation audits

    To help ensure safe, quality care standards are maintained at all services at all times, announced re-accreditation audits will be replaced with unannounced re-accreditation audits across residential aged care services.

    The new arrangements will apply to all residential care services:

    • applying for re-accreditation from 1 July 2018
    • with an accreditation expiry date on, or after, 1 January 2019.

    The new arrangements will not apply to providers that have already been advised of the date of their re-accreditation audit.


    Key Changes
    A summary of key changes to re-accreditation audits can be found on the Department of Health’s website.


    Information sessions for providers
    We are offering a series of one hour information sessions in various locations across Australia to inform approved providers of residential aged care about these changes.

    The sessions are open for registration; please find dates and location below, click on the link to register online.
