Cancellation of the certificate of recognition
Under Section 97 of the
Further Education and Training Act 2014 (the Act), the Department of Education and Training may consider the cancellation of a principal employer organisation's (PEO's) certificate of recognition.
The department may consider the cancellation of a PEO's recognition if it is reasonably satisfied that one or more of the following grounds applies:
- the organisation has not complied with a condition applying to its certificate of recognition
- the organisation has stopped operating as a PEO
- the organisation provided false or misleading information:
- when applying to be recognised
- after the issue of its certificate of recognition.
A PEO aggrieved by a decision to cancel its certificate of recognition may apply to the Queensland Civil and Administrative Tribunal (QCAT) for a review of the decision as provided for under Section 167(1)(d) of the Act.
