The standard provides national benchmarks for the quality of education and care services. Your education and care service will be assessed against the standard. The Agency may refuse your application for a service approval if your service does not meet the requirements of the standard.

An existing service approval may also be suspended or terminated if the service is assessed as failing to meet the standard.
