If you work or volunteer with children you might need to apply for this new registration.
The new law requires registration for some important roles within child related organisations, but importantly allows organisations to adjust the screening requirements to suit their particular organisation.
There are a number of exemptions under the new law regarding situations where people engaged in regulated activities need not apply.
If you are a volunteer or you are working in a child-related role, you will be phased in to registration between now and January 2017.
A quick way to check if registration is mandatory for your role is by undertaking the online survey in the green box (top right of this page) titled Do I need to Register?
