Penalty Fees for Delayed, Cancelled and Failed Accreditation Events

CASE reserves the right to charge a fixed penalty fee to a university or other education provider in instances where the providers actions (or inaction) result in significant delay,* cancellation or failure to (re-)accredit courses or approve major changes.  Such fees will only be applied when it is clear the Accrediting team have spent time and effort on the event – as a minimum this will include a documentation review and feedback. 


Fees may be charged more than once if the situation continues but will be restricted to no more than once per 12-month period.


Consideration will be given to extenuating and mitigating factors as appropriate and each instance of a fee being applied will be reviewed on an individual basis.


The penalty fee is set at c70% of the full accreditation cost and will apply per course.
