Maintenance of CRICOS Status
A registered provider must continue to meet the requirements of the Tasmanian Qualifications Act 2003 and the Education Services for Overseas Students (ESOS) legislative framework, including the National Code of Practice.
TASC officers will monitor compliance with the requirements and standards for registration through a variety of means, including audits. A provider must be able to demonstrate it meets requirements at any point during its period of registraiton. At any point throughout the registration period, the registering authority may give a direction to providers. The Executive Officer has the power to impose sanctions according to the provision of the Tasmanian Qualifications Act 2003.
Scope of registration and maintaining accreditation of courses
A provider is required to manage its scope of registration. Providers must ensure all courses offered to overseas students studying in Australia are currently accredited and listed on CRICOS. Accreditation periods for each course vary and may differ from provider registration periods.
Notification of Changes
You are required to notify TASC of changes to circumstances related to your registration status within 14 days (National Code Part D 15). This includes change of Principal Executive Officer (PEO), contact details, legal status, sites etc.
TASC must approve any work-based training (National Code Part C 8).
Arrangements with other providers
Providers must advise TASC in writing of all providers to be involved in providing a registered course. TASC must approve any partnership arrangements or agreements with other schools or training providers (National Code Part C 10).
Providers from another State/Territory
Any registered CRICOS provider from another jurisdiction must be registered in Tasmania before it can begin operations in Tasmania.
Application to renew registration
An application for renewal is considered as if it were an initial application. The same requirements apply. It is the provider's responsibility to apply to renew registration. We recommend providers submit their application to renew at least six months before to expiry to ensure that registration does not lapse.
