It is a legal requirement for all early years services proposing to operate from the 30th June 2016 to make application under section 58D(2) of The Child and Family Agency Act 2013, at least 3 months before it is intended to commence operation. ( except in the case of a Temporary early years service in which case at least 21 days notice must be given).
The Tusla TEYIS Service Portal, is a new system that will support you in creating an online Tusla Registration Application Form (RAF). The Tusla RAF contains 12 sections plus a section on Documents. You will enter registration information in each of the 12 sections and you will also upload a number of evidence documents. The Tusla Service Portal will also support you in navigating to a payment system called 'WorldPay'. It is in the 'Worldpay' system where you will pay your registration fee. When your RAF is completed and your fee payment is successful, the system will then support you in 'submitting' your RAF to the Tusla Early Years Inspection team for processing.
We recommend you complete the online training course, which you can access below, in advance of accessing the portal. Below you will also find a user guide which can support you during the process and a FAQ if you encounter any diffculties.
When you have completed the online training course and are satifsfied that you are familiar with the process and requirements for completing the RAF you can proceed to the TEYIS Service Portal.
