Structure and membership

The Standing Committees by areas of higher education and the Standing Committee on Post-Accreditation Monitoring and Control are formed by the Accreditation Council which appoints their members through selection by applications.

The Committees are comprised of 3 to 7 members, one of whom is Chairman of the Committee. The Chairman of the Accreditation Council appoints the members of the Committees for a three-year term.

The Standing Committees by areas of higher education are 8, even though the National Classification of Fields of Study in Higher Education includes 9 areas of higher education and 52 professional fields. The Standing Committees are 8 since for areas 8 and 9: “Arts” and “Military Science” a separate Committee wasn’t established because of the small number of institutions and programmes in these two areas. On the contrary in area 3 “Social Science” the number of professional fields and majors is so big that it became necessary that two committees be responsible for them: the Standing Committee on Social Science, Law and National Security Studies and Standing Committee on Economic Sciences and Management.

The Standing Committees of the HE areas:

1. Make the decision to start the requested procedure or for rejection to start the procedure, when the information required according to art. 81, para 6 and 8 of the HE Act has not been provided by the requester or by the HE institution in the cases under art.81, para 7 of the HE Act for:

a)program accreditation of professional fields;

b)program accreditation of scientific majors, other than those included in the regulated professions list;

2. Propose to the Chairman of the Accreditation Council the membership and tasks of the Expert Teams according to the procedures described in art.81, para1, item 2, letters “b” and “d” and item 6, letter “b” of the HE Act;

4. Consider the reports of the Expert Teams, submitted to the Committee, after their coordination with those supervising the procedure;
