Social Security Point-in-Time Service Updates

Tuesday 7 January 2020 @ 2.15 p.m.

The Social Security Point-in-Time Service has been updated to include the Aged Care Legislation Amendment (New Commissioner Functions) Act 2019 (Cth) (Act 116 of 2019).

Act 116 of 2019

The purpose of the Act is to transfer additional aged care regulatory functions of the Secretary of the Department of Health to the Aged Care Quality and Safety Commissioner. This reform completes the two-year agenda to strengthen and enhance aged care regulation to protect and assure the quality of care provided to consumers of Australian Government funded aged care. It delivers on the intention as set out in the objects of the Aged Care Quality and Safety Commission Act 2018.    

These amendments have been updated in the Point-in-Time Social Security Service current to 6 January 2020. (NB: Subscription required).
