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.
