Annual Declaration on Compliance - submit by 29 February 2024
The Annual Declaration on Compliance (ADC) 2024 is open until 29 February 2024 – ASQA has emailed the unique weblink of the online declaration to all CEOs of ASQA-regulated RTOs.
The Standards for Registered Training Organisations (RTOs) 2015 require all RTOs to submit an ADC.
If your RTO CEO has not received the unique weblink from ASQA, you should take the following steps:
- Check your CEO’s spam/junk mail folder.
- Check that the email address for your CEO contact is correctly listed on training.gov.au. If the address is incorrect, your RTO should update the contact details in asqanet, and then submit an enquiry using our online form to request that ASQA re-send the email.
- If none of the above apply, your RTO should contact ASQA and advise that you have not received the email.
Do you need to submit the ADC?
Check your initial registration date on training.gov.au: RTOs registered from 1 January 2024 do not need to submit the ADC this year.
RTOs registered on or before 31 December 2023 need to submit the 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.
Completing the declaration
To complete the declaration, you will need to assess your training organisation’s compliance with the Standards.
In most cases, if providers have been self-assuring their practices, systems, and processes during the year it typically takes between 15 and 30 minutes to complete.
While more than one person in your organisation may contribute to the online declaration, the final declaration needs to be completed by the person legally responsible for the registration of the RTO (the CEO).
