Risk Assessment Framework

The Risk Assessment Framework is made under section 190 of the National Vocational Education and Training Regulator Act 2011.

This framework:

  • sets out a suggested process for ASQA to monitor, and where necessary respond to, risks of non-compliance with the VET Quality Framework
  • outlines processes that can be used to determine arrangements for assessing registration applications
  • describes how RTOs may be individually measured for risk exposure, and
  • supports an approach where RTOs that either present a low risk of non-compliance or consistently deliver high-quality training and assessment services will receive minimal regulatory scrutiny. (RTOs assessed as higher risk in terms of the likelihood of adverse impacts on quality outcomes will receive more regular monitoring.)
