I have my skill assessed from ACS last year. I got the letter from ACS on 08th October 2009 with MODL. There have been some changes by DIAC. Please find link below:

Australian Immigration - Legislation Change Update

It has been mentioned here :
From 1 January 2010, the Migration Regulations 1994 ('the Regulations') are amended to provide a new requirement for all applicants seeking to satisfy the criteria for the grant of a Skilled – Independent (Subclass 885), Skilled – Sponsored (Subclass 886) and Skilled - Regional Sponsored (Subclass 487) visa. The new requirement means that a person must have had their skills assessed by the relevant assessing authority as suitable for the applicant’s nominated skilled occupation to lodge a valid application.

Visa applicants who nominate a skilled occupation which has been specified by the Minister in an instrument in writing, must have had their skills assessed by the relevant assessing authority, on or after 1 January 2010, as suitable for the applicant’s nominated skilled occupation.

The amendments further provide that all persons seeking to satisfy the criteria for the grant of a Skilled – Independent (Subclass 175), Skilled – Sponsored (Subclass 176) or Skilled - Regional Sponsored (Subclass 475) visa, who nominate a skilled occupation specified by the Minister in an instrument in writing, regardless of the person’s location at the time of application, must have worked in the skilled occupation for at least 12 months in the period of 24 months ending immediately before the day on which the application was made


Do i need to go for ACS assessment again? Please suggest.

Hi there,

TBH I'm not sure either.

I'm guessing that as the new changes come into effect from 1st Jan those applications (with skills assessments) that are already in the system won't be affected by the new changes. Therefore if you have submitted your application before 1st Jan you won't need to re-do your skills assessment.

Hopefully someone can clarify!

PS typical DIAC, change things but then don't explain adequately!!!!

OK....I still think that you should be OK as you did your skills assessment before the changes came into effect.

Fingers crossed someone can qualify for you.

GOOD LUCK for your IELTS exam!

I have applied for Skills Assessment for ACS on 2nd May 09 and received the positive skills assessment in July 09 with 2231-79 (Not Elsewhere Classified) as my nominated occupation. At this time i have only 8 months of experience in Oracle because of which i haven't received 2231-79 (Oracle Specialist) as my occupation which is in CSL. I have applied for VE175 with the above skills assessment which is neither in MODL nor in CSL in August 09.

It's been almost 9 months i have filed for Skills Assessment and this 9 months i have been working on Oracle which increase my experience to 1 Years 4 months in Oracle. If i apply for a skills assessment now i hope i will receive 2231-79 (Oracle Specialist) as my nominated occupation which makes my occupation in CSL.

Will it be possible for me to upgrade my existing nomination of 2231-79 (nec) to 2231-79 (Oracle Specialist) as i have the required experience in the VE175 application?

As far as I know, new assessment with old application is not possible (I may be wrong) .. best bet is to ask DIAC directly.. else, you mayhave to re-apply with new skill assessment which means new processing fees ..

According to my knowledge, I think your nominated ASCO code should be in MODL. If you got letter from ACS OR any other authorized Skill assessment body that’s it. If I’m wrong please update me.

This change is for Trade Occupations

Hey, I think these changes are for Trade occupation and not for Professionals. I am not sure what is your occupation.
