1.2 Ratification of the Institutional Quality Assurance Processes

Before implementing its IQAP for New Program Approvals, Expedited Approvals, Major Modifications (Program Renewal and Significant Change), and Cyclical Program Reviews, each university must first submit its IQAP to the Quality Council for ratification. The Council will test the consistency of its component parts with the substance and principles set out in the respective Quality Council protocols. The same process will apply whenever an institution implements any substantive change to its IQAP. Minor amendments need only be reported to the Quality Council. The Quality Council will conduct its subsequent audit of institutional compliance with its ratified Institutional Quality Assurance Process.
