The Unique Student Identifier (USI) Office issues a monthly news update, the USI Bulletin.
ASQA-registered RTOs will be asked to submit total VET activity data for the 2017 calendar year, including full AVETMISS data, in early 2018.
This exemption has been extended until 31 December 2016.
RTOs must have a valid USI for each student before issuing their qualification or statement of attainment.
Before you can issue a VET qualification, statement of attainment or a testamur, your RTO must record and verify a USI for each student.

The Unique Student Identifier will make it easier for students to find, collate and authenticate their VET achievements into a single transcript.
The Department of Industry has recently provided an update on the Student Identifier Bill 2014, which will enable the introduction of a Unique Student Identifier (USI) for the VET sector.
