Blue cards and exemption cards for Licensed Care Services

In order to receive and maintain a licence, people involved with a licensed care service are required to be suitable to undertake their role within that service.

The Department of Communities, Child Safety and Disability services has developed a guideline to clarify the screening requirements for different roles within a care service.

Blue Cards

Certain persons associated with licensed care services (persons in regulated employment) are required to hold a blue card or exemption card issued by the Public Safety Business Agency (PSBA).

Nominees or directors

To be completed by people who are, or are applying to be, a nominee (paid or volunteer) or director of a licensed care service and returned to Child Safety Licensing:

Exemption cards are applicable to registered teachers and police officers proposing to start or continue to be licensees and directors of a licensed care service.

Authorisation forms are used when the applicant already holds a current blue card. It permits PSBA to inform the department of the current status of an application, that validity of a blue card and any changes to the status of an application.

Paid employees

To be completed by paid employees of a licensed care service and returned to the PSBA:

Exemption cards are applicable to registered teachers and police officers of a licensed care service proposing to start or continue in paid child related employment.

For paid employee authorisations, use the 'Authorisation to confirm a valid card/application' form (PDF, 166 KB).
