When granting accreditation to an institution to provide an approved programme, the Authority may impose conditions on the accreditation that are—


specific to the programme or a particular class of programmes; or


specific to the institution or a particular class of institutions.


The Authority may at any time, with the agreement of the accredited institution, impose new conditions on the accreditation and may amend or revoke any existing conditions.


The Authority may, without the agreement of the institution, impose conditions on an accreditation, or amend or revoke any existing conditions, but only if the Authority has first—


given written notice to the institution of its intentions; and


given the institution a reasonable opportunity to respond to the notice; and


considered any submissions made by the institution in response to the notice.


When conditions are imposed, amended, or revoked, the Authority must give notice in writing to the accredited institution of the new, amended, or revoked conditions.
