Peer Review is no longer required by the RCB Immigration SA for the first stage of the RSMS process. This change was introduced from 24 June 2013.
Immigration SA posted the following on their blog:
“A recent review has identified the following changes to the RCB application process:
- Removal of peer review - effective immediately
- Simplified assessment questions
- Extensively reduced evidence requirements
- Quicker application process”
For Immigration SA announcements:
Peer Review required a letter from an employment agent or industry body or Union about not being able to fill the position. It was very unpopular with employers, who often chose not to proceed with the RSMS process.
