PUBLIC NOTICE

As per Registration and Accreditation Regulations, non-compliance with any NACTE requirement is an offence. The regulations stipulate the actions to be taken for each offence. Based on findings of the Monitoring Teams, the Council is empowered to take actions against institutions that are not complying.

 

The Council is hereby informing the public that it has taken different actions to 48 technical institutions for various offences, committed by the same, as follows:
