The Office of the Student Identifiers Registrar (OSIR) is responsible for administration of the USI scheme in accordance with the Student Identifier Act, 2014. NCVER, as the custodian of the VET data standard (AVETMISS) and national VET administrative collections on behalf of the state, territory and commonwealth governments is responsible for the collection of data for the National VET administrative collections, and for supporting registered training organisations (RTOs) to meet their AVETMISS reporting obligations.
