Apprenticeships, Skills, Children and Learning Act 2009

Section 147: Surrender of recognition

444.This section allows a recognised body to surrender recognition by giving notice to Ofqual. There are no explicit arrangements for such surrender in the current legislation. Ofqual has the power to decide the date on which surrender takes effect (acting in accordance with the requirements of subsections (2) and (3)) and may make saving or transitional provision (such as allowing a qualification to continue to be treated as regulated where students are taking resits of exams beyond the date on which recognition has otherwise expired). In determining the surrender date, Ofqual must aim to ensure that those learners seeking or who might reasonably be expected to be seeking the qualification are not prejudiced.
