Skills assessments are issued by relevant skills assessing authorities. A skills assessing authority is an organisation that checks that your skills meet the standards they set to work in a relevant occupation.

Most occupations in each list have their own skills assessing authority. The Department of Home Affairs only accept a skills assessment issued by the relevant assessing authority.

Check here what is the relevant assessing authority for your occupation. Each assessing authority has its own assessment procedures, timeframes and charges.
