Submission of Review Documents & Deadlines

The Register Committee convenes twice a year (spring and autumn, see below). Before each meeting there is a deadline (15 March and 15 September) for which complete applications (review documents) must have reached the Secretariat in order to be considered at that meeting.

  • In case of initial applications the review documents must be submitted before one of the two deadlines (15 March / 15 September);
  • In case of applications for renewals, the review documents need to be submitted before the expiry of the agency's registration. The application will be considered at the next meeting of the Register Committee (in case the full documentation is submitted at least 2 months prior to the meeting, otherwise the application is postponed for the next meeting).

It is the agency's responsibility to plan the review so as to ensure all review documents are submitted before expire of their registration (see figure below).

The EQAR Register Committee will then make a decision on admission of the agency to the Register or renewal of its registration, respectively. See further:
