4.4 False and misleading information

On this page

You are responsible for ensuring the accuracy and validity of all information provided to TRA.

TRA will take reasonable steps to verify the validity of all information supplied throughout the JRP skills assessment. However, if at a later date TRA believes that information previously supplied for an application with a successful outcome may be false, misleading, non-factual, or simply incorrect, TRA may undertake further investigation and/or immediately revoke the outcome. This may result in a mandatory reassessment of your evidence, experience and skills.

If you refuse to participate in a mandatory reassessment or TRA determines that information previously supplied is false, misleading, non-factual or simply incorrect, and that in reliance on that information TRA has incorrectly assessed an application as successful, TRA will write to you to advise the assessment is no longer considered successful and advise Home Affairs accordingly.

TRA may refer such matters to the appropriate authorities for investigation where information or documentation provided to support an application is known or believed to be false or misleading. No fees will be charged for a mandatory reassessment of this type.

Note: Penalties may apply under the Crimes Act 1914 and the Criminal Code Act 1995 for making false or misleading statements and providing false or misleading information or documents.
