Internal review of a system decision to recommend a reduction in the duration of registration and/or accreditation

A member school may request an internal review of an approved authority's determination to make a recommendation to the Registration Committee under the following circumstances:

  • where the approved authority will recommend to the Registration Committee that the duration of registration be reduced

or

  • where the approved authority will recommend to the Registration Committee to reduce the duration of accreditation or to reduce it in so far as it relates to one of the recognised certificates.

In these circumstances, when an internal review is requested by the principal (or equivalent) or proprietor (where appropriate), the review is conducted by the registration system. The review process is undertaken by persons not involved in the initial assessment of the school's application for registration or accreditation. The documentation considered by the review includes that submitted by the applicant previously and any additional documentation that the applicant wishes to have considered, the intended recommendation and the reasons for that recommendation.

In dealing with an internal review of a recommendation to place a member school on provisional registration, the approved authority will consider any written comments from the principal (or equivalent) and proprietor (where appropriate) in relation to the original advice, the recommendation and the reasons for the recommendation and the internal review report prepared by persons not associated with the original inspection report.
