NDIS Renewal may commence six months prior to the expiry date and no later than three months prior.
The audits for this re-registration cycle are a thorough process made up of Stage 1 and Stage 2 audits. The Stage 1 audit is an off-site, desk-top audit that determines your readiness for certification and is followed by a Stage 2 audit, usually within three months.
Body corporates and large organisations requiring a certification type audit will undergo the Stage 2 audit on-site. In contrast, NDIS providers undertaking a verification type audit will usually have their Stage 2 audit conducted off-site.
Both Stage 1 and Stage 2 audits are performed by an NDIS approved quality auditor who will examine the evidence you provide against the relevant modules of the NDIS Practice Standards.
