The Expert Group on National Quality Assurance Frameworks (NQAF) was formally established in August 2010 after an invitation to designate a quality representative to serve in the group had been sent to the 17 countries listed below, taking regional representation into consideration. In addition, nine agencies and international organizations were invited to serve as observers.
The initial discussions began with an exchange of information on each member country's experience with the development or use of a national quality assurance framework, and the problems and obstacles they experienced (or would anticipate experiencing) in developing and implementing an NQAF. Comments on the needs and priorities of countries vis-à-vis the development and implementation of an NQAF, and opinions on the proposed templates for a generic NQAF presented in the Statistics Canada report to the UN Statistical Commission http://unstats.un.org/unsd/statcom/doc10/2010-2-NQAF-E.pdf were also provided. Click on the countries', agencies' or international organizations' names below to read the comments that had been submitted.
