Last month, the state Government announced that Victoria will further relax its COVIDSafe Settings.
As part of this announcement, there was also a critical update on record keeping.
It is now mandatory for businesses to use the free Victorian Government QR Code Service or a QR Code provider that is connected to the Application Programming Interface (API).
The API allows the QR code system to ‘speak’ with Victoria’s contact tracing system technology. This change will allow contact tracers to quickly access check-in data and strengthen the privacy of data collected across the state.
If you are already using the free Victorian Government QR Code Service for your record keeping, you do not need to do anything.
If you are not using the Victorian Government QR Code Service, find out if the app you are using is connected to the Victorian Government Visitation API. If it is, you don’t need to do anything – just keep using the app as normal.
If you need to change providers because your current provider does not intend to connect to the Victorian Government API, the Victorian Government QR Code Service is easy to use and is free for all Victorian businesses and organisations.
If you would like to learn more about your record keeping obligations, two information sessions are available via Sport and Recreation Victoria.
Thursday 1 April from 10.00am to 11.00am
Wednesday 7 April from 10.00am to 11.00am
If you have any additional questions, please contact Sport and Recreation Victoria via email.
