Tertiary Education and Research (Wales) Act 2022

Section 43: Voluntary de-registration and de-registration with consent

135.Registered providers may apply, in a form determined by the Commission, to be removed from the register or a category of the register or may give consent to a proposal from the Commission to remove the provider from the register or a category of the register.

136.If a provider applies for de-registration in accordance with subsection (6), the Commission is obliged to accept the application and must specify a date for removal from the register or category of the register. The governing body of the provider is able to apply for a review by the decision reviewer of the decision regarding the date for removal (see section 45).

137.Where a provider applies to be removed from a category of the register, it may specify in its application that it is, at the same time, applying for registration in a different category. Where such an application to change categories is made, the effect of subsections (2) to (4) is that the Commission is not obliged to remove the provider from its existing category unless it is also able to register it in the new category.

138.As in section 41, the Welsh Ministers may make regulations establishing transitional arrangements (subsection (13)). This might involve temporarily treating the provider as a registered provider, for example, to enable existing students at the provider to continue to receive student support.

139.The Commission must publish a list of any providers removed from the register or a category of the register and of any regulations made under subsection (13).
