We are seeking views on our proposal to change our requirements about the location of the awarding organisations we regulate.
Our proposals are intended to address two matters:
- the UKs new relationship with the EU during the transition period following the UKs exit from the EU; and
- to remove the possibility that we might recognise an awarding organisation which, although legally established in the UK, Gibraltar or in an EU or EFTA country, does not have a substantial presence in any of these countries.
We are seeking views on our proposals to change:
- our Criteria for Recognition (the Criteria), which we use to determine whether we should recognise an organisation to offer regulated qualifications; and
- our General Conditions of Recognition (the Conditions), with which awarding organisations, once recognised, must comply.
