TPS PIR Consultation Paper

Comments sought from all CRICOS Registered Members by Friday 26 Sep 2014

Your input is needed for a Post-Implementation Review (PIR) of some of the legislative changes that resulted from the 2012 amendments to the Education Services for Overseas Students Act 2000 (ESOS Act). The PIR is required by the Office of Best Practice Regulation and focuses largely on the operation, effectiveness and regulatory impact of the Tuition Protection Service (TPS). It also encompasses another change implemented in 2012 relating to national registration on the Commonwealth Register of Institutions and Courses for Overseas Students (CRICOS).

The PIR is required to address three specific measures relating to:

A. Operation of the Tuition Protection Service.

B. Requirement to only refund the portion of the course not delivered.

C. Enable national registration of education institutions.

In your responses to this consultation paper, please provide as much detail as necessary to explain your views. We apologise for the short notice involved.
