Dissolving Boundaries For A Quality Region

The AGM of the Asia Pacific Quality Network (APQN) has endorsed a proposal for the establishment of the Asia-Pacific Quality Register (APQR) as part of its Decennial agenda in 2012. APQR would be a register of external quality assurance agencies (QAAs) that demonstrated certain thresholds of maturity. An independent external review by peers would be the backbone of the APQR.

APQR came into effect from January 2015, and the first meeting of APQR Council was held in Kunming, China during 17‐19 April, 2015. The first formal review for the APQR was conducted for the Fiji Higher Education Commission (FHEC) in Suva during 24-26 June, 2015.
