NDIS Worker Check

The NDIS Worker Check (NDISWC) is administered by a screening agency in the Office of the Children’s Guardian (OCG). The screening agency is responsible for:

  • helping you apply for an NDISWC
  • assessing applications
  • issuing a clearance or an exclusion.

Service NSW assists the NDISWC by providing customer service and support.

If you have a question about the NDISWC:

NDIS Quality and Safeguards Commission

The NDIS Quality and Safeguards Commission sets the requirements for NDIS providers, including worker screening requirements.

The NDIS Commission is responsible for:

  • what worker screening checks are required
  • which workers need a check
  • when workers can start work
  • employer access to the NDIS Worker Screening Database portal.

If you're an employer, you should contact the NDIS Quality and Safeguards Commission.

Check their website for information and contact details.

Working with Children Check

In NSW, workers may need an NDISWC and a Working with Children Check (WWCC).

The WWCC is also administered by the OCG, but it is separate from the NDISWC.

If you have a question about your WWCC, visit Working with Children Check or call (02) 8219 3777
