Changing or finishing child-related work
As a blue or exemption card holder, you need to let us know about any changes to your child-related work.
Starting with a new employer
If you already have a blue/exemption card and start work with a new employer, your employer will need to let us know by using the online Organisation Portal or submitting a Link an applicant/cardholder to this organisation form to us.
If you are a volunteer (V) cardholder who starts in child-regulated paid work, you will need to advise us within 14 days by completing the volunteer to paid transfer form and paying the prescribed fee. As long as there has not been a change to your eligibility, we will issue you a paid (P) blue card.
Finishing work with an employer
If you stop working with your employer, you need to let us know by completing a no longer with organisation (for applicants/cardholders) form.
No longer need a blue card
If you are no longer working in child-regulated employment, you don’t need to cancel your card. If you want to cancel your card, you need to fill in a request to cancel card form.
If you cancel your card and need a card again in the future, you will need to re-apply and pay the prescribed fee.
Starting a business
If you already have a volunteer (V) blue card, you need to advise us within 14 days by completing a volunteer to business transfer form and paying the prescribed fee. As long as there has not been a change to your eligibility, we will issue you a paid (P) blue card to use as a business operator.
If you already hold a paid (P) blue card or (E) exemption card, you need to complete a notification of change for self-employed persons form.
You will also need to develop and implement a child and youth risk management strategy. Find out more about your risk management requirements.
