"This document sets out the approach we intend to follow in exercising our statutory powers to take regulatory action. It is consistent with the Act in its description of our powers, the way in which we will exercise them, and the matters to which we will have regard. Where the Act gives us a discretion, it indicates how we intend to use it. This document will be of interest to those whom we regulate and to others who have an interest in our approach to regulation. From time to time we will re-evaluate our approach to taking regulatory action and revise or update this document as appropriate. This document forms part of the Qualifications Regulatory Framework, which sets out how we intend to perform our monitoring and enforcement functions. We have different duties and powers with regard to regulated qualifications and to regulated assessment arrangements. In this document we address only the regulatory action we can take in respect of awarding organisations and the regulated qualifications they award." - page 5.
