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.

    Registered: 14/05/2011 to 31/12/2014

  • HETAC - Higher Education and Training Awards Council
    Registered: 07/10/2009 to 30/09/2011
    HETAC decided that it would not be sensible to undertake a second 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.
