As required by section 45 of the National Law, the Accreditation Committee has published its accreditation process.
The Accreditation Committee undertook wide ranging stakeholder consultation about its accreditation process and will continue to seek feedback from users as it is implemented.
Education providers pay two types of accreditation fees - accreditation assessment fees and annual accreditation fees.
The Accreditation Committee sets these fees on a cost recovery basis. “Cost recovery basis” refers to recovery of some of the costs to deliver the accreditation function including the cost of the Accreditation Committee’s ongoing operations (direct costs and AHPRA support) as well as the direct costs associated with accreditation assessments and standard annual monitoring activities.
The fees are reviewed on a regular basis and may change from time to time.
