Changes have been made to the manner in which NDIS providers and NDIS participants with access to the NDIS Worker Screening Database, receive information about NDIS Worker Screening. See notification below for more information.
NDIS Worker Screening Database
The NDIS Worker Screening Database allows unregistered NDIS providers and self-managed participants to verify and check the NDIS Worker Screening clearance status of workers engaged to provide NDIS supports and services.
Unregistered NDIS providers and self-managed participants use the NDIS Worker Screening Database to:
- verify that a worker is or will be engaged by them to provide NDIS supports and services
- check the clearance status of a worker
- monitor the clearance status of workers and when a clearance is about to expire
The NDIS Worker Screening Database is only available to unregistered providers and self-managed participants that have been approved to access it by the NDIS Quality and Safeguards Commission. If you have not been granted access you can request access. For assistance with the NDIS Worker Screening Database or to apply for access please refer to the Quick Reference Guides.
For assistance with PRODA, please contact the PRODA helpline on 1800 700 199.
Should you need additional technical support, please email email@example.com(link sends e-mail).

Self or plan-managed participants now receive information about NDIS Worker Screening in the NDIS Commission Portal ‘Inbox’. To access the ‘Inbox’, log into the NDIS Worker Screening Database and navigate to the ‘Inbox’ tab.
