Review or appeal

A review or appeal can be requested if you hold a valid assessment previously undertaken by CA ANZ.

A review application can be requested for the following reasons:  

  • full (Permanent) skills assessment following a previous provisional skills assessment
  • obtain an additional ANZSCO Code
  • update an existing application with additional details 

An appeal application can be requested if you would like to dispute the decision. You believe the assessment outcome is incorrect, and an error has been made.  

What you should know before applying for a review or appeal of skills assessment  

  • A review fee is payable for all review assessments.
  • Please ensure you provide a valid English Language Proficiency test report along with your qualification assessment application, including updates and additional ANZSCO code reviews.
  • If you believe the assessment outcome is incorrect and, an error has been made, an appeal can only be submitted within 60 days from the date of your skills assessment outcome letter. You must include detailed reasons why you believe the original outcome is incorrect. No additional or altered documentation can be submitted. An appeal will be assessed by a different or senior assessor within CA ANZ who was not involved in the original outcome. The assessor will re-assess all documentation with particular focus on the comments and reasons you provided on your appeal application. If the appeal identifies that an error has been made that affects the skills assessment outcome, CA ANZ will issue a revised skills assessment outcome. An appeal fee is payable and will be refunded if the appeal is successful. For an external appeal, we recommend you contact the Administrative Appeals Tribunal or the Commonwealth Ombudsman for an independent review.
  • CA ANZ will not accept altered employment reference letter at any time after lodgement and decision of the initial application. A skilled employment appeal for changes to/or additional job description/task list provided in your previous work reference letter for the same employment period will not be accepted
