Guide for use:Help on this term

This item should be recorded as the date a decision was made regarding the service response required by the department.

This data element should always be recorded as an 8-digit valid date comprising day, month and year. Year should always be recorded in its full 4-digit format. For day and months with a numeric value of less than 10, zeros should be used to ensure that the date contains the required 8 digits. For example, if the contact assessment decision was made on 1 July 2004, the date should be recorded as 01072004.

If the date is unknown, the date 01011900 should be provided.
