The non-compliance with moderation requirements actions that may be taken by NZQA were revised.

Requirements for consent to assess will apply with effect from September 2017

 

Non-compliance with moderation system requirements actions that may be taken will apply with effect from September 2017.

 

Organisations with consent to assess will be expected to be able to demonstrate compliance with the CMR from March 2018 onwards.
