What situations does this apply to?

Untitled Document

A request for reassessment must directly relate to a situation where QCAA has identified issues for the school RTO to address.

This includes the following situations:

  • making a decision to change the RTO’s scope of registration
  • varying or removing a condition imposed on the RTO’s registration
  • lifting of applying suspension of the RTO’s registration.

As part of the reassessment process, QCAA will consider new evidence provided by applicants to demonstrate that the identified issues have been addressed.

Who should make the request?

The Principal (Chief Executive) or RTO manager (registration enquiries officer) as listed on must make the request.

How long does it take for the request to be finalised?

QCAA endeavours to complete the reassessment process in a timely manner. It may take up to 90 days and varies according to the volume of evidence reassessed.

The school RTO will receive written notice of the reassessment decision and the reasons for this decision within 30 days of the decision being made.

Please contact the Principal Project Officer if you wish to apply for a reassessment of a decision at or telephone (07) 3864 0381.
