Seek review of an ASQA decision
The following options may be available to you to seek a review of an ASQA decision about CRICOS registration.
Request that ASQA review the decision
You may be able to ask us to review the decision if the decision was made under delegation, that is, by someone other than the CEO of ASQA. Once you have been notified of the decision you have 30 days to either make an application for review or to request that we extend this timeframe. A review application may also request that we extend the effective date of our decision until the review process has concluded.
Following a review, we may decide to affirm, vary or set aside the original decision. If we set aside the decision, we can make another decision in its place.
Submit a new application
You may be able to submit a new application which addresses the areas of non-compliance identified in the reasons for our decision. This applies if we decided not to approve your application for initial registration or change of scope. A new application will be subject to all relevant fees and charges.
Administrative Appeals Tribunal (AAT)
You may be able to apply to the AAT for external review of an ASQA decision if a satisfactory resolution cannot be achieved through an internal review, or if an internal review is not available. You can request a stay of ASQA’s decision as part of the AAT review process.
More information on decisions that are eligible for AAT review and applying is available on the Administrative Appeals Tribunal review of an ASQA decision page.
Freedom of information (FOI)
Access to documents relating to decisions can be requested under an FOI request. Find out more about Freedom of information requests.
