All governments and ACECQA are committed to supporting the sector to understand and prepare for changes to the National Quality Framework (NQF). Most changes will commence 1 October 2017 in all states and territories (except Western Australia which will commence by 1 October 2018). This page will be updated as more information and guidance is developed over the coming months.
Updated National Law and Regulations will be made available closer to 1 October 2017. The Education and Care Services National Law Amendment Act 2017 is available and can be read in conjunction with the current law.
