Consultation Regulation Impact Statement (CRIS)

The Consultation Regulation Impact Statement (CRIS) proposes options for change for the purpose of advancing the early childhood education and care sector in Australia. Proposals could result in changes being made to the Education and Care Services National Law, the Education and Care Services National Regulations or guidance material covering the operational application of legislative requirements that form part of the National Quality Framework. The CRIS is a tool designed to facilitate robust policy outcomes by ensuring each option is carefully assessed based on impacts, and against alternatives, in a transparent and accountable way.

The CRIS explores a total of 21 issues relating to:

  • safety, health, and wellbeing;
  • family day care;
  • outside school hours care;
  • workforce;
  • understanding of quality ratings by families;
  • changes in fees within the NQF system;
  • oversight and governance of services and providers; and
  • proposed changes to the NQF arising from the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse.
