Policy on Mergers of Registered Agencies

A specific policy addressing mergers of registered quality assurance agencies has been agreed by the EQAR Register Committee. They may remain on the Register for up to two years, during which the new, merged agency will have to undergo an external review against the European Standards and Guidelines (ESG).

This provisional registration is subject to strict conditions and requirements, and will only be open to cases where all agencies involved have already been registered. Details are set out in the new EQAR Merger Policy.
