Annual declaration on compliance open until 30 April 2020

Deadline extended

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, ASQA has extended the deadline for RTOs to complete the declaration of compliance from 31 March to 30 April 2020.

Each year, the Standards for Registered Training Organisations (RTOs) 2015 (the Standards) require all ASQA RTOs to submit an annual declaration on compliance.

The annual declaration is an important tool for both providers and for ASQA:

  • for providers, the annual declaration is an opportunity to undertake a self-assessment and to make sure that all information ASQA holds about your operations is correct
  • for ASQA, the annual declaration helps to identify emerging systemic issues in the VET sector.

The annual declaration is a simple online form. The form itself takes between 15 and 30 minutes to complete in most cases. However, to complete the declaration you will also need to assess your RTO’s compliance with the Standards, which may take longer if you are not regularly undertaking self-assessment of your RTO.

ASQA sent an email to each RTO’s Chief Executive Officer on Friday 21 February 2020. Each email contains a unique URL to your survey.

The annual declaration online form is available until midnight on Tuesday 31 March 2020 Thursday 30 April 2020.
