Scope and principlesProfessional, Statutory and Regulatory Body (PSRB) is an umbrella term for a diverse group ofbodies. Professional bodies often act in the interest of an individual profession to promote andsupport professionals by being a membership organisation. They are usually independent ofgovernment and control entry to a specific profession. A regulatory body acts in the publicinterest, regulating professional activity or individual professionals.

regulators have powers mandated by Parliament and protect the public interest byguaranteeing the standards underpinning the professional title.The institution strives to provide professionally recognised and practice-oriented programmes,which contribute to an outstanding learning experience and generate excellent graduateemployment opportunities and outcomes for all students. Accreditation through PSRBs playsan important role in helping to achieve this aim.This guidance sets out only the formal processes for engagement with PSRBs and is in no wayintended to limit or prescribe the informal communication channels between Departments andtheir PSRBs which are vital to the maintenance of good relationships.2. Key roles and responsibilitiesKey individualsa) The Academic Registrar has strategic oversight for PSRB activity. They will submit areport of current PSRB accreditation/engagement and dates of any subsequent review or reapproval to Academic Board on an annual basis.b) A nominated member of Departmental staff (appointed by the relevant Head ofDepartment) - the PSRB link tutor - will coordinate, prepare and manage PSRB activity onbehalf of the Department. The link tutor will liaise with the Academic Registrar, the Dean ofTeaching and Learning and the relevant Head of Department (or nominee) regarding the PSRBactivity and ensure reports are submitted (or assist with submission of reports) as required.The PSRB link tutors are the designated official correspondent with all PSRBs in respect of theformal accreditation of awards and the formal notification of decisions and responses arising inthe context of accreditation.c) The Dean of Teaching and Learning will provide guidance on how the relationship withthe PSRB can be used to maximise the benefit to the student experience.d) The Curriculum Records Manager will provide guidance on curriculum approval mattersrelating to the PSRB activity.Committeesa) The Academic Board is responsible for ensuring the awarding institution’s quality andstandards mechanisms in relation to PSRBs are followed and reporting on this as appropriate.Any variant regulations would have to be approved by Academic Board.b) The Academic Standards and Enhancement Committee has an overview of PSRBactivity and will receive notification of the outcome of each engagement. It is responsible formonitoring any action plans resulting from PSRB activity and will highlight good practice orissues requiring enhancement to further committees and subsequently to the awardinginstitutions as appropriate.c) The Curriculum Validation Committee has responsibility for approving new curricula andchanges to existing curricula and will therefore consider any implications related to PSRBengagement.3. Engagements with PSRBsEach PSRB has its own requirements with which the institution must comply in order toachieve and maintain its relationship. Most require some formal involvement with theVersion: 2019-20 v1Valid:1 Sept 2019Page 2 of 5

awarding institution’s approval, review and regulatory processes in order to satisfy themselvesabout the standard of an award and the content, coverage and application of the curriculum intheir subject areas.The following section sets out the most common types of engagement with PSRBs but is notintended to be exhaustive or prescriptive. Individual PSRBs will have specific requirements interms of information required and the format of events. Where PSRBs require specificdocumentation (e.g. evidence of competency mapping), the institution will endeavour to usethese documents in place of those prescribed in this guidance if appropriate. In such cases,prior approval must be gained from Academic Standards and Enhancement Committee or viaChair’s action as needed.The procedure for seeking PSRB accreditation, either for a new or existing programme (NB thechange itself may be the intention to seek PSRB accreditation) is laid out in the ‘PSRBAccreditation and Internal Approval Process Sheet’.Curriculum development requiring PSRB accreditationWhere approval of a new programme or amendments to an existing programme which alsorequires PSRB accreditation are being undertaken, PSRB requirements should be consideredas part of the curriculum development process. The curriculum development should follow theestablished procedure set out in the HQEF and is undertaken alongside the compilation of anyadditional information or documentation required by the PSRB. This may be achieved by:a.Inviting a representative from the PSRB to join the curriculum approval as a panelmember; or,b.Considering documentation provided by the PSRB prior to curriculum approval.The outcome of engagement with the PSRB, if outside, or additional to, the usual CurriculumDevelopment activities, should be recorded by the Curriculum Validation Committee Officerusing the ‘Notification of outcome of PSRB engagement’ template and sent to AcademicStandards and Enhancement Committee for consideration.Annual monitoring for maintenance of accreditationCertain PSRBs require annual reports to be submitted to them in order for the relationship tobe maintained. The format of the report and any supporting documentation will be mutuallyagreed. In such cases, prior approval must be gained from Academic Standards andEnhancement Committee or via Chair’s action as required.Notification of changes to curriculumWhere changes are proposed to relevant programmes it is necessary to consult the PSRB ontheir requirements for maintenance of ongoing relationship before any amendments areapproved by the awarding institution. A formal record of these consultations should beretained by the nominated PSRB link tutor. Each PSRB will have a specific process which mustbe followed and which may range from notification of the changes made to a full approvalprocess.The outcome of engagement with the PSRB, if outside, or additional to, the usual CurriculumDevelopment Activities, should be recorded by the PSRB Link Tutor using the ‘Notification ofVersion: 2019-20 v1Valid:1 Sept 2019Page 3 of 5

outcome of PSRB engagement’ template and sent to Academic Standards and EnhancementCommittee for consideration.4. PSRB outcomes and the Quality AssuranceCycleThe Key Roles and Responsibilities section above sets out the committees responsible foroversight of PSRB activity and the monitoring of outcomes, however, these outcomes alsoplay an important role in the wider Quality Cycle. They should be considered as part ofCurriculum Development, Continuous Monitoring and Enhancement and Periodic CurriculumReview. Likewise, issues and examples of enhancement arising from these activities willinform curriculum development with PSRBs.5. PSRBs and variant regulationsOn occasion, the requirements of a PSRB may conflict with the academic regulations resultingin a request for a variation to regulations. In this case, the appropriate procedure forrequesting a variation to regulations will be followed. The request should include a clearstatement from the PSRB directly or evidence from the PSRB’s accreditation criteria that thisvariation is required for accreditation. Any communications already held with the PSRBregarding this must also be provided.Any approved variations must be recorded in the relevant Programme and ModuleSpecifications.6. PSRBs and external examiningSome PSRBs have specific requirements around the appointment and role of ExternalExaminers and these must be taken into account when appointing External Examiners andwhen agreeing the details of their reporting commitments. An External Examiner usuallycompletes an Annual Report to the institution and PSRB requirements can be taken intoaccount at this point, or by agreeing a different reporting process.7. Exception-based reporting to external bodiesCertain external bodies who provide funding, require Higher Education Providers to report tothem any significant weaknesses identified by independent reviews by PSRBs, the QualityAssurance Agency or internal processes in a timely manner and for an action or improvementplan to be put in place to address the weakness.All reports involving independent reviews by PSRBs, QAA or internal processes are submittedto Academic Standards and Enhancement Committee and any other committees asappropriate. The report to the Academic Standards and Enhancement Committee will beaccompanied by an action plan or improvement plan if issues or weaknesses have been raisedduring the course of the reviews.Version: 2019-20 v1Valid:1 Sept 2019Page 4 of 5
