The Hon Ian Macfarlane MP, Minister for Industry, has released the revised Registered Training Organisation (RTO) and Vocational Education and Training (VET) Regulator Standards for public consultation.

Following the public consultations on the new draft standards, a final draft will be prepared for consideration by the COAG Industry and Skills Council. It is intended that the revised standards will come into effect from 1 January 2015.

Submissions from interested stakeholders on the revised standards are welcome to vettaskforce@industry.gov.au.

Prior to the new standards coming into effect, ASQA will provide sufficient information to the sector so that providers are clear about what compliance with those new standards means.
