Consultation to develop the new regulatory model for aged care

Learn about how we are engaging with stakeholders to develop the new model.

We are taking a staged approach to the design and consultation process for the new model.

Stage 1 – complete

We released a concept paper and its Plain English version on 8 February 2022. This paper outlines a new, improved approach to regulating aged care.

Stage 2 – complete

On 5 September 2022 we released the first consultation paper on consultation hub. Accompanying the paper is a summary and Plain English version.

The paper provides a high-level overview of the new model and its components.

We received 40 submissions and 108 completed questionnaires in response to the paper. Stakeholders broadly supported the proposed approach.

Stage 3 – underway

In December 2022, we hosted workshops to seek additional feedback on provider registration categories. These categories are a key feature in the proposed new model to regulate aged care. We held these workshops with:

  • older people
  • their families and carers
  • providers
  • other stakeholders.

We used the feedback and advice from experts in regulation and constitutional law to further develop the categories.

We have released the second consultation paper and summary paper which are open for public feedback.
