The National Disability Insurance Scheme Amendment (Participant Service Guarantee and Other Measures) Act 2022 passed both houses of Parliament on 30 March 2022 and received Royal Assent on 1 April 2022.
This amendment to the NDIS Act 2013 establishes the Participant Service Guarantee which will improve the experience and outcomes for people with disability who engage with the Scheme.
On 8 April 2022, a small number of changes came into effect.
These included giving more time to prospective participants to provide additional information to support their access request (from 28 days to 90 days); and making sure that the Agency gives reasons when reviewing a reviewable decision.
Administrative changes were also made to the NDIS Act to remove redundant and outdated references, rule-making powers and provisions that were used during the transition to full Scheme. This includes updating references in the legislation from ‘National Disability Insurance Scheme Launch Transition Agency’ to ‘National Disability Insurance Agency’.
Other changes introduced by the amendment (including plan variations) will come into effect on 1 July 2022.
