Surrender of recognition

This section has no associated Explanatory Notes

17(1)A recognised body may give notice (a “surrender notice”) to Qualifications Wales that it wishes to cease to be recognised in respect of—

(a)the award of a specified qualification or description of qualification, or

(b)every qualification in respect of which it is recognised.

(2)A surrender notice must specify the date with the expiry of which the body wishes to cease to be recognised in the respect concerned.

(3)As soon as reasonably practicable after receipt of a surrender notice, Qualifications Wales must give notice to the recognised body (an “acknowledgement of surrender”) providing that the body is to cease to be recognised in that respect with the expiry of the date specified in the surrender notice or, if Qualifications Wales thinks appropriate, with the expiry of a different date.

(4)If the acknowledgement of surrender specifies that the body is to cease to be recognised in that respect with the expiry of a different date from that specified in the surrender notice, the acknowledgement of surrender must give reasons for this.

(5)Recognition in the respect concerned ceases to have effect with the expiry of the date specified in the acknowledgement of surrender.

(6)In determining whether a body’s recognition is to cease to have effect with the expiry of the date specified in the surrender notice, or with the expiry of a different date, Qualifications Wales is to have regard to—

(a)the need to avoid prejudice to persons who are seeking, or might reasonably be expected to seek, to obtain the qualification, or a qualification of the description, specified in the surrender notice, and

(b)the body’s wish that recognition should cease to have effect with the expiry of the date specified in the surrender notice.
