Did you read the link?

•the skills assessment is still valid (validity periods are determined by skills assessing authorities and may differ between occupations/authorities).
If you read Australian and New Zealand Standard Classification of Occupations (ANZSCO) as posted on the other thread you will find the point quoted preceded by words which mean an ASCO code assessment will be valid if particular conditions are met, one being that quoted.

Hi,
I am appling for the visa type 175 through a consultant.They are telling me that i need to start the re-evaluation process again.My ACS evalutaion result is valid till 3rd September 2010. I have shown them faq section on the DIAC website which says:
I’ve already obtained my skills assessment in an ASCO occupation but have not lodged an application yet − is my skills assessment still valid?
Yes. If you apply for a GSM visa after 1 July 2010 you can still use your ASCO skills assessment obtained prior to 1 July 2010, provided that your ASCO skills assessment is still valid.
To allow for this, the department has correlated all ASCO occupations currently acceptable for skilled visa program purposes to their acceptable corresponding ANZSCO occupation(s). These correlations will be used to determine whether your valid ASCO skills assessment is an acceptable correlation for your ANZSCO nominated occupation. As the two occupation standards contain several differences, in some cases this may mean that one ASCO occupation correlates to several ANZSCO occupations and, conversely, that one ANZSCO occupation correlates to several ASCO occupations.


Yet thet say i have to go for the re-evaluation again.

@Wanderer can you please comment on this?

Perhaps you should ask your consultant why they think you will need a new assessment if the current one you have is valid for an occupation on the new SOL.
If they cannot answer that properly and have not read the Immi transitional information, perhaps you need to question their competence and ask for any money back if you have paid any already as you do not feel they are competent.
On the other hand they may come up with reasoning that is not apparent to us.

Well, that does explain it for if the ACS classification you have is not on the new SOL or shown as an equivalent of an ANZSCO classification, that is why you will need to seek a new classification if you can, one that is on the SOL - schedule 3.

Hello Dhaval.

I am in similar situation. I also have ASCO code computing professionals 2231-79 NEC. I am on 485 visa since may 2009. I am putting PR in OCT 2010.
Now did you apply for PR with ASCO code or did you get the new ANZSCO code from ACS ??

Please reply ,,,

Hi,
I am from Mumbai.Have applied through Canam in mumbai. The codes that you are mentioning if for ENSOL.The visa you are applying for does not fall under employee nominated scheme. According to the old ACS evaluation if the asco code was 2231-79 and if u check Skilled Occupation List (SOL) – Schedule 3 pdf it does not exist in the pdf.So i feel you will have to get a re-evaluation done.
