Ofqual has completed a review and these conditions are no longer in force.



Awarding organisation Issue Action taken Case status
Fire Industry Association (FIA) Development, delivery and award of QCF and vocationally-related qualifications Imposed special conditions (at recognition) Open

On 12 June 2014, we accepted FIA’s application to be recognised for QCF and vocationally-related qualifications.

At the same time, we decided to impose special conditions on FIA. This is because:

  • FIA is a new regulated awarding organisation and its processes and practices for the development, delivery and award of qualifications have not yet been implemented and tested
  • During the application process, the FIA identified a number of new ways of working and practices that it intends to implement following recognition
  • we want to make sure that the FIA’s processes and procedures, including the new ones introduced following recognition, are working as intended

We will keep these special conditions under review, and will remove them when they are no longer necessary.
