Former Entries on the Register

The quality assurance agencies listed on this page were included on the Register for a period of time in the past.

Where appropriate, the reasons for the agency no longer being registered are included. If no reasons are given, the inclusion of the agency has expired and the agency has not submitted an application for renewal of inclusion. In this case, the agency might have either decided not to inform EQAR about its reasons or requested EQAR not to publish them.

If you find that any particular entry is unclear or inaccurate, please contact us.

  • AQA - Austrian Agency for Quality Assurance
    Registered: 2009-10-07 to 2012-11-30
    AQA has ceased operations and thus did not apply for renewal of registration. AQA's functions have become part of the new Agency for Quality Assurance and Accreditation Austria (register entry).
  • ECCE - European Council on Chiropractic Education
    Registered: 2013-05-07 to 2016-12-31
    ECCE applied for renewal of registration in October 2015, but the application was rejected as the Register Committee was unable to conclude that ECCE substantially complies with the ESG.
  • EVA - Danish Evaluation Institute
    Registered: 2011-05-14 to 2014-12-31
    EVA did not renew its registration due to the fact that all functions regarding QA and accreditation have been moved to the Danish Accreditation Institution (register entry). EVA conducts thematic evaluations and studies nowadays.
  • HETAC - Higher Education and Training Awards Council, Ireland
    Registered: 2009-10-07 to 2011-05-31
    HETAC decided that it would not be sensible to undertake a 2nd external review of the agency to maintain its EQAR registration in 2011, as the agency was expecting to be amalgamated. Since 15 October 2012, HETAC's functions have been taken over by the new Quality and Qualifications Ireland (QQI). QQI has been registered on EQAR since June 2015. See QQI's register entry here QQI.
  • IUQB - Irish Universities Quality Board
    Registered: 2009-10-07 to 2012-10-15
    The functions of IUQB have been transferred to Quality and Qualifications Ireland (QQI) as from 15 October 2012. The primary purpose of establishing IUQB has thus ceased. See QQI's register entry here QQI.
  • NEAA - National Evalution and Accreditation Agency
    Registered: 2009-10-07 to 2013-07-31
    NEAA applied for renewal of inclusion in 2013, but the application was considered withdrawn after no external review report was submitted by 31/10/2013.
