Annual declaration on compliance
What is a compliance declaration?
The annual declaration on compliance helps us maintain quality VET training in Australia.
Training providers need to submit an annual compliance declaration to deliver VET training.
Your declaration is a statement confirming your organisation complied with the Standards for all certifications issued in the last 12 months.
A compliance declaration confirms:
- records are current and accurate
- you monitor and meet regulatory requirements
- you can identify and address risks.
Review Clause 8.4, the Standards to learn more about the regulatory requirements for reporting.
When is the compliance declaration due?
In February each year, we invite the Chief Executive Officer of each training provider, by email, to complete the declaration. Each email contains a unique URL link to your survey.
