Together with our regulatory partners in England and Northern Ireland, we are adopting a new approach to how we carry out regulation which must be followed by awarding organisations.

You can find the new relevant regulatory documents below. The Criteria for Recognition set out the requirements that have to be met by an awarding organisation before it can gain recognition status. The General Conditions of Recognition are rules that awarding organisations, once recognised, must follow.

Some of the previous regulatory requirements will continue to apply, either in full or in part. Details for this can be found via Ofqual’s website.
