The Quality Council for Trades and Occupations (QCTO), in consultation with the South African Qualification Authority, is asking you to comment on the deregistered misallocated pre-2009 qualifications as well as the pre-2009 qualifications intended to be deregistered as they are using HEQSF nomenclature on the OQSF.

Comments can be emailed to publiccomments@qcto.org.za by no later than Tuesday, 30 March 2021

The public comments process is intended to enable the QCTO to obtain substantive evidence to be used to make a recommendation:

a) For the re-registration of deregistered qualifications in relation to Annexure A up until 30 June 2023 in line with the transitional arrangement provided for as part of pre 2009 qualifications (under the SAQA Act, 1995) as outlined in the Ministerial determination in Gazette 344031 of 24 December 2020.

b) For the immediate deactivation of qualifications that are no longer utilised and only keep those that are still being offered up until 30 June 2023 in line with the transitional arrangement provided for as part of pre 2009 qualifications (under the SAQA Act, 1995) as outlined in the Ministerial determination in Gazette 344031 of 24 December 2020.
