Liaison Panel for Academic Accreditation

In March 2016 the Council approved the establishment of two Liaison Panels. The establishment of the panels was based on a recommendation from the External Review of HKCAAVQ against a set of international good practice principles.  The purpose of the panels is to provide a forum for dialogue with representatives of the main stakeholders of accreditation services to discuss the parameters within which HKCAAVQ operates and topics of mutual interest related to the development of our services.


The membership of the two Liaison Panels was confirmed in July 2016.  The Panels shall meet once a year. Extra meetings will be held on a need basis.  The establishment of the committees will be reviewed after 3 years.   

Terms of Reference
  • To discuss developments in education and training in Hong Kong;
  • To provide feedback on HKCAAVQ’s accreditation services;
  • To share information about developments in quality assurance approaches;
  • To provide input to HKCAAVQ on new policy initiatives or review of existing policies and processes; and
