188.8.131.52 ACCS (child wellbeing) - giving notice
This topic describes circumstances in which an approved provider (1.1.A.90) is required to give notice to an appropriate state or territory body (1.1.A.75) in relation to a child 'at risk' (1.1.A.110).
This means that an approved provider must give notice to an appropriate state or territory body in relation to the child:
- within 6 weeks from a certificate coming into effect, and
- before applying for an ACCS (child wellbeing) determination.
The approved provider does not need to give notice if:
- the approved provider gave notice to an appropriate state or territory body in relation to the child less than 6 weeks prior to giving the certificate or applying for the determination, or
- the child was referred to the provider by an appropriate state or territory body noting that the child was 'at risk'.
