The purpose of the Internal and External Post-Registration Monitoring is, for a newly Registered Provider, to identify how well it is implementing its Quality Management System and Internal Monitoring Plan, and complying with the conditions for registration.
The process is built on the key audit principle that the provider is responsible for its own quality. Therefore, the provider must first develop an internal monitoring plan, and subsequently implement this plan. A report on its progress must be submitted to the VQA no later than six months after the registration date.
During the External Post-Registration Monitoring activity, the VQA will verify the provider's report, and identify any issues for which the provider may require support.
Providers must read the documents listed below in detail before they engage in Internal Post-Registration Monitoring.
