What is the deadline?
All RIW cardholders must accept the PAA by 30 June 2020.
How do cardholders accept the PAA?
Cardholders can accept the PAA by creating a myRIW account, or they can use their RIW card when swiping on to a site through an Access Controller, which will automatically accept the PAA on their behalf. If a cardholder actively declines the PAA, then their RIW profile, including all associated competency and medical records, will be deleted from the RIW System. Deletion is irreversible and will require an Employer to re-add the cardholder to the RIW System as a new cardholder, paying all associated ID check and card fees, and re-uploading all competency, job role and medical information.
What if they miss the deadline?
If a cardholder does not use or create a myRIW account by 30 June 2020, they will lose their authority to work and their profile will be made inactive. This means the cardholder will no longer be primarily employed by your company.
How can employers check PAA acceptance?
Employers can check the status of PAA acceptance for their primary cardholders by running a report titled Permission Access Agreement Report for Employer Admin. The report can be accessed by clicking on the Reports tab > Existing Reports. The report provides a list of all primary cardholders employed by the company and their PAA status, which will be Approved or Not Approved (refer screenshot below). It also includes the cardholders email address, which Employer Administrators can use to contact cardholders to remind them to accept the PAA in myRIW.
