  • Forms

    Use these forms to apply for a Yellow Card.

Expansion of disqualifying and serious offences

The range of disqualifying and serious offences has been expanded and there is a new framework for dealing with charges and convictions for a serious offence. More information on the new framework is available in the Disability Services Act 2006.

NDIS worker screening requirements 

Under NDIS quality and safeguards, NDIS registered providers and sole traders need to consider a wider range of roles and jobs that may require worker screening. It's important that NDIS providers understand how to assess which roles and jobs require screening. More information is available on the NDIS Commission website.

Anyone already working in a role or job that now requires worker screening, can continue but must lodge an application for a Yellow Card by the end of October 2019.
