A recent upgrade to training.gov.au will allow more information to be published about registered training organisations’ (RTOs) registrations. As such, the Australian Skills Quality Authority (ASQA) will take a new approach to publishing information about its regulatory decisions.
Previously ASQA has published the regulatory decisions it had taken immediately. However, these decisions could still be subject to an application to ASQA for reconsideration of its decision, or to an application to the Administrative Appeals Tribunal.
ASQA has now decided that it would be a fairer practice to defer publication of its regulatory decisions until an RTO’s rights for reconsideration or appeal have been exhausted.
Any RTOs who feel information published about them is inaccurate should contact the ASQA Info line on 1300 701 801 or email enquiries [at] asqa.gov.au
