Closer inspection of the access criteria, particularly those factors relevant to determining if a requirement is satisfied, may assist in identifying what information is relevant and should be submitted to the Agency. If the Agency wants more information in making a determination it will be requested later in the process. Thoroughly considering and locating relevant information and documentation at the beginning may save time and energy spent on repeated requests.

Where instructions are unclear regarding the information required, it may be useful to consider the legislation, rules and guidelines that specify the factors the Agency is to consider or have regard to in making particular determinations.

It may be worth seeking clarification of any instructions if the prospective participant is unsure of what the Agency requires.

After submitting an application or documents, it may be useful to seek confirmation from the Agency that all necessary information has been provided or to seek clear explanation of any gaps or problems identified.
