Compliance and Enforcement policy suite

The regulatory powers and functions of the NDIS Commission are set out in the National Disability Insurance Scheme Act 2013 (the NDIS Act), and associated Rules. The NDIS Commission’s regulatory powers are underpinned by the Regulatory Powers (Standard Provisions) Act 2014 (RP Act).

The NDIS Commission’s compliance and enforcement activities are an important part of its work as a regulator. Those activities enable the NDIS Commission to encourage best practice among NDIS providers and manage risk to NDIS participants.

The NDIS Commission has a range of tools for responding to non-compliance. The overarching Compliance and Enforcement Policy provides a broad overview of our compliance and enforcement functions, strategies and tools. A number of more specific policies have been developed to provide guidance on the NDIS Commission’s approach to the use of particular compliance and enforcement tools. These policies are available on this page and are:

  • Compliance Notices Policy
  • Infringement Notice Policy
  • Enforceable Undertakings Policy
  • Injunctions Policy
  • Civil Penalties Policy
  • Vary, Suspend or Revoke Registration Policy
  • Banning Order Policy
  • Warning Letter Policy
  • Corrective Action Request Policy
