Enforcement guidelines & powers

Registrars have the power to register providers, monitor provider performance, to intervene when non-compliance occurs, and to cancel the registration of non-compliant providers.

Under the National Law, Registrars have information and inspection powers and a range of enforcement powers, including:
  • issuing a Notice of Non-Compliance
  • giving Binding Instructions
  • issuing a Notice of Intent to Cancel Registration
  • appointing a statutory manager.

The enforcement approach is based on a spirit of encouraging providers to remedy non-compliance, before a Registrar takes enforcement action.
