Compliance and enforcement

Monitoring and compliance is important to the NDIS Quality and Safeguards Commission’s work as a regulator.

The NDIS Commission uses a range of compliance tools to prevent and address breaches of the National Disability Insurance Scheme Act 2013 (the Act) including education, and working closely with other complaints and regulatory bodies. The Act also provides us with a range of compliance and enforcement powers, including banning orders, compliance notices and court-based outcomes.

The NDIS Commission Compliance and Enforcement Policy provides more information about our approach to maximise compliance with the Act, and outlines our compliance and enforcement functions, strategies and tools.

The NDIS Commission Infringement Notice Policy provides background information and guidance on our general approach to using infringement notices as a compliance and enforcement tool.

The Compliance and Enforcement actions register contains information on compliance activities we have undertaken, including banning orders we have issued. It is updated on a regular basis. 

The NDIS Commission Compliance and Enforcement Priorities identify the key quality and safeguarding issues we will focus on in our compliance and enforcement activities.
