Approvals Framework

Many social sector providers are assessed against the Approvals Framework, which was introduced in March 2014.

The Approvals framework determines the level of compliance a provider is required to meet so that they can gain or maintain accreditation. Accreditation has no expiry date.

The type of services, that a provider delivers, determines the level of compliance a provider will need to meet.
