The Commission is the national end-to-end regulator of aged care services.
The Commission has responsibility for approving providers and receiving compulsory reports. We independently accredit, assess and monitor aged care services subsidised by the Australian Government, conduct home care investigations, and determine compliance requirements to be imposed on providers (such as sanctions). We also resolve complaints about these services. Through our engagement and education work we aim to support providers to comply with quality standards, and promote best practice service provision.
These processes are done in accordance with the Aged Care Quality and Safety Commission Rules 2018 (Rules) established under the Aged Care Quality and Safety Commission Act 2018 (Act).
