Provider registration is granted for a fixed period of time, normally five years. Before the registration expiry date, a provider must ensure that its registration has been renewed.
The process to prepare for renewal begins 18 months before the expiry date, with a Self-Review conducted by the provider, followed by an External Review carried out by VQA approximately one year before the registration expiry date. For more information about these processes, consult the Quality Audit page.
After the External Review the provider begins with making its application for Renewal of Registration, which must be received by VQA no later than six (6) months before the registration expiry date.
