- the RTO must retain, and provide to ASQA within 14 days on request, copies of completed student assessment records for a period of eighteen (18) months from the date of completion.
- The RTO must not apply to add any new VET courses to its scope, until to the completion of a compliance monitoring audit conducted by ASQA.
- On or before 1 September 2020, the RTO must complete a validation process of 20% of the units of competency from each VET course on scope except suspended courses, pursuant to clauses 1.9-1.11 of the Standards.
As part of the validation process, the Applicant must engage two (2) suitably qualified and independent validators* to review a sample of three (3) completed student assessment files from four (4) units of competency in each qualification where delivery occurred since 1 September 2019, to assess compliance with clause 1.8 of the Standards.
*Independent Validator means a person who is not employed or subcontracted by the RTO to provide training and assessment; and otherwise has no involvement or interest in the operations of the RTO, but for the validation process.
A validation report must be prepared, and presented to ASQA on request, setting out the findings from the validation process, including any recommendations made and action taken as a result of such recommendations. Primary evidence of all documents referred to the validation report must also be retained, and present to ASQA on request.

This review must be completed by 1 October 2020, by which time a report must be prepared with the assistance of the external consultant and presented to ASQA on request. The report must set out any recommendations, and actions taken as a result of such recommendations, including primary evidence of all documents referred to in the report.
