NATIONAL QUALIFICATIONS AUTHORITY (NQA)

On the 23 August 2010, President His Highness Sheikh Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan issued Federal Decree No. 1 ‘Establish and Maintain the National Qualifications Authority’. The role of the National Qualifications Authority (NQA) is to work with related entities to establish and implement an internationally recognised qualifications system for the UAE, which includes a national qualifications framework. The NQA Board approved the qualifications framework for the United Arab Emirates (known as the QFEmirates) (Qualifications Framework for the Emirates Handbook, 2012).
