Part 10 Division 1 Clause 196
196   Variation of authorisations
(cf clause 81D of EP&A Regulation 1994)
(1)  The Minister may from time to time vary the terms of an accreditation body’s authorisation.
(2)  The proposal to vary the terms of an authorisation may be made by the Minister or by the accreditation body.
(3)  Clause 193 applies to a proposal to vary the terms of an accreditation body’s authorisation (whether made by the Minister or by the accreditation body) in the same way as it applies to an application for authorisation as an accreditation body.
(4)  The terms of an accreditation body’s authorisation may not be varied unless the Minister is satisfied (having regard to the functions referred to in clause 194) that the accreditation body:
(a)  has sufficient resources and expertise to exercise the functions of an accreditation body, and
(b)  in the exercise of those functions, will comply with the requirements of the Act, this Regulation and the Ministerial guidelines,
in relation to the class of matters in respect of which the accreditation body is, or (if the variation affects that class of matters) is to be, authorised.
(5)  As soon as practicable after deciding to vary the terms of an accreditation body’s authorisation, the Minister must cause notice of that fact to be published in the Gazette.
(6)  The notice must indicate the name of the association, the fact that the terms of its authorisation have been varied and the terms of its authorisation (as so varied) or the place at which the terms of its authorisation (as so varied) may be inspected.
(7)  A variation of the terms of an accreditation body’s authorisation takes effect on the date on which the notice is published in the Gazette.
