The NDIS Commission assesses the suitability of NDIS providers and their key personnel to deliver NDIS supports and services.
This includes whether you or your key personnel have:
• previously been a registered NDIS provider
• had a banning order in place
• any past convictions
• been insolvent under administration
• had adverse findings or enforcement action taken by any relevant authorities
• been the subject of findings or judgement in relation to fraud, misrepresentation, or dishonesty
• been disqualified from managing corporations

They will contact you if they need more information. They will then make a decision and contact you to let you know if your application has been successful and the reasons why or why not.

Some applications take longer to process than others. The timeframe depends on various factors, including the size and scale of your organisation, as well as the complexity and range of the supports and services you deliver. Generally, the timeframe for completion of the registration will be no longer than 12 months; for many NDIS providers, it is a much shorter period.
If you have applied for renewal of registration prior to the date of expiry, your registration will automatically be extended until the Commissioner makes a decision on your application for renewal. Once you have engaged an auditor and you provide them with a reference number and your scope of audit document, the auditor has nine months from the expiry date on your certificate of registration to complete the audit and report back to the Commission.
