Annual Declaration on Compliance - 17 April 2023

20 March 2023

The Annual Declaration on Compliance (ADC) 2023 will begin on 17 April 2023.

The declaration is a regulatory requirement and can only be completed by the person who is legally responsible for the registration of the RTO (the Chief Executive Officer).

On 17 April 2023, ASQA will email RTO CEOs a unique weblink to the online declaration.

To inform all RTO CEOs of this year’s process, and to provide information on how to prepare for the ADC, ASQA has sent an email on 17 March 2023. 

If your CEO has not received the initial email from ASQA, you will need to:

  1. check their spam/junk mail folder
  2. if the email did not arrive in the spam/junk mail folder, check that the email address for your CEO contact is correctly listed on
  3. if the email address is incorrect, you need to update the contact details in asqanet

Preparing for the ADC

Prior to the ADC process, we encourage you to:

  • check your records with us are current and accurate on asqanet
  • if you identify incorrect information about your RTO, update it via asqanet
  • conduct an assessment of your RTO’s compliance with the Standards and conditions of registration.

This will ensure the information that ASQA holds about your RTO is correct.  

ASQA’s Self-Assessment Tool can assist in assessing compliance with legislative requirements, as well as to reflect on your RTO practices, systems and processes to identify areas for improvement.

Do you need to submit the ADC?

New RTOs

Check your initial registration date on RTOs registered from 1 January 2023 do not need to submit the ADC this year. 

Only RTOs registered on or before 31 December 2022 need to submit this year’s ADC. 

RTOs managed by Queensland Curriculum and Assessment Authority (QCAA)

If the registration of your RTO is managed by QCAA, you do not need to submit the ADC to ASQA. QCAA has a separate submission process this year – contact QCAA for more information.
