Education Ministers have agreed to amendments to the National Law and Regulations.
An updated version of the National Law and Regulations – which combines amendments with the current law and regulations – will be available shortly after 1 October 2017, when they will commence in all states and territories, except Western Australia*.
In the interim:
- the Education and Care Services National Law Amendment Act 2017 is available and can be read in conjunction with the current law, and
- the Education and Care Services National Amendment Regulations 2017 are available and can be read in conjunction with the current regulations.
A link to the updated versions will be published on this webpage once available.
* Western Australia changes will commence by 1 October 2018 to allow for legislation to pass through that parliament.
