While ASQA typically includes information on pending deadlines (such as the deadlines to submit data) on the ASQA website and in the ASQA Update, a reminder is not sent to each RTO. It is up to every RTO to ensure they comply with Clause 8.4 of the Standards for Registered Training Organisations 2015.
As a condition of registration, RTOs are required to ensure continued compliance with the VET Quality Framework, which includes the Standards for Registered Training Organisations and Data Provision Requirements. Failure to report full and accurate data as and when required can result in ASQA taking regulatory action.
While ASQA typically includes information on pending deadlines (such as the deadlines to submit data) on its website and in newsletters, ASQA does not send individual reminders. It is a condition of RTO registration that quality indicator data is submitted in accordance with Clause 8.1 of the Standards for Registered Training Organisations 2015.

You must submit your quality indicator data reports in full to firstname.lastname@example.org by close of business 30 June each year. Quality Indicator data is required for previous calendar year (1 January to 31 December).
If your RTO submitted 2018 delivery activity data directly or through a state authority to the AVETMISS national collection, your RTO has met its competency completion reporting requirements and will not be able to access CCOS.
RTOs that had been granted exemptions from reporting 2018 data to the AVETMISS national collection must report their aggregated activity data through CCOS by 30 June 2019.
RTOs that conducted no delivery activity in 2018 MUST submit a statutory declaration to email@example.com testifying to this fact by 30 June 2019, if they have not already done so.
All RTOs will receive an email in coming weeks informing them of their individual obligations.
All registered training organisations (RTOs) must collect and report 'Total Vocational Education and Training (VET) Activity' data. This includes full Australian Vocational Education and Training Management Information Statistical Standard (AVETMISS) data, in accordance with the National VET Provider Collection Data Requirements Policy.
You must collect AVETMISS-compliant records for all students, and for all competency enrollments and outcomes achieved, throughout the calendar year.
Early in the following year, you must report this data to the National Centre for Vocational Education Research (NCVER) unless you have previously done so through existing contractual arrangements.
There is are a range of Australian Vocational Education and Training Management Information Statistical Standard (AVETMISS) reporting exemption categories that may apply to registered training organisations (RTOs) or to the delivery of training products.
There are a number of student management systems that can record and produce AVETMISS data files for reporting. A register of data entry tools and student management systems is available on the NCVER website.
NCVER has developed a free AVETMISS data entry tool for RTOs with less than 100 students and an AVETMISS validation software for RTOs to validate their data before submission. Both tools are available on the NCVER website.
Usually data regarding government funded training is submitted to the relevant State Training Authority and other training data is submitted to NCVER. Please visit the NCVER website for further details.
