Part 5: Right of review and waivers
Regulation 17: Right of review
If we have:
refused to grant approved education provider status, or granted approval or authorisation subject to conditions under regulation 8;
refused to grant authorised education provider status, or granted approval or authorisation subject to conditions under regulation 9;
refused to grant authorised training provider status or granted authorisation subject to conditions under regulation 11;
revoked authorised training provider status or imposed conditions under regulation 16.1;
refused to recognise a period of training under regulations 5.5 or 16.2; or
determined that an individual is not eligible to commence or continue recognised training under regulation 6.4;
the applicant may apply to us in writing for a review of the decision within one month of receiving notification of it.
Where we have determined that an individual is not eligible to commence or continue recognised training and have subsequently upheld that decision following a review under regulation 17.1, that individual has a right of appeal under regulation 2.1 of the SRA Admission Regulations.
If an organisation is seeking a review of our decision relating to its status as an authorised training provider, the organisation must not permit a new trainee to commence a proposed period of recognised training until the outcome of the review is determined. For trainees already in periods of recognised training, we reserve the right to recognise or refuse to recognise part or all of their training in accordance with regulation 5.4.
