Details of how the qualifications regulators in England, Wales and Northern Ireland work to limit burden on regulated organisations.


Qualification regulators' statement on joint working to reduce burden on our Awarding Organisations

Ref: Ofqual/19/6551PDF, 1010KB, 4 pages


There have been separate qualifications regulators in the UK jurisdictions for many years. However, since the devolution of education policy there has been a greater legitimate divergence across England, Wales and Northern Ireland. We are aware that this may place additional burden on awarding organisations/bodies (AOs/ABs) offering qualifications across the three jurisdictions. We actively work together to reduce the risk of unnecessary burden, whilst acknowledging we have different legislative responsibilities in respect of it.
