A new nation-wide NDIS Worker Screening Check and NDIS Worker Screening Database will be introduced by the NDIS Quality and Safeguards Commission from 1 February 2021.

The NDIS Worker Screening Check (NDIS Check) will, with other regulatory and community provisions, help to better support the dignity, safety, and wellbeing of NDIS participants.

A mechanism to assess whether a person who works, or seeks to work, with people with disability poses a risk to them, the NDIS Check will determine whether a person is cleared or excluded from working in certain roles with people with disability.

NDIS workers and providers are encouraged to visit the NDIS Check website to find out more and be aware of obligations before the worker screening process is rolled out.
