You must apply for registration before you provide residential services in the form of a privately-owned boarding house, supported accommodation hostel or aged rental accommodation.
Within three months of registration, you must apply for accreditation. You can apply for three levels of accreditation:
Level 1 Accommodation service
Level 2 Food service
Level 3 Personal care service.
All providers must apply for Level 1 accreditation. To obtain accreditation, you must show that your residential service meets minimum standards for each accreditation level.
Your application may be as an individual or a corporation. You may also choose to have an associate operate the service on your behalf.
