Skills Active Aotearoa Limited has completed the revision of the Consent and Moderation Requirements (CMRs) listed above.
Date new version published January 2012
The next CMR review is planned to take place during 2014.
Summary of revision
The 'master' CMR for Community Recreation, Environment, Outdoor Recreation and Ngā Mahi ā te Rēhia, Snowsport, Sport, Fitness, and Diving [Ref: 0099] was revised and CMRs 50, 69, 102, and 180 were updated to mirror the appropriate sections of CMR 0099.
A review of the Assessment Intention Plan (AIP) moderation process indicated this was administratively time-consuming for both the standard setting body and the external clients. More moderation options have been developed to better reflect the varying needs of organisations with consent to assess, unit standard risks and levels, and practical assessments. An immediate change was required to Appendix 4 as a result of a key client, mentioned in version 3, changing their focus. The Skills Active Board and CEO were closely involved with this process.
Compliance with new requirements
Requirements for consent to assess will apply with effect from January 2012.
Moderation system requirements will apply with effect from January 2012.
Organisations with consent to assess will be expected to be able to demonstrate compliance with the CMR from July 2012 onwards.
