The current state of play with the EQF referencing process

Of the 39 countries involved with the EQF referencing, 35 have undertaken the referencing process and have endorsed referencing positions. Most of the remaining countries are expected to have undertaken the referencing process by the end of 2019.

Many countries are now producing updated referencing reports following developments in their qualifications systems. The UK presented its first report on referencing the Credit and Qualifications Framework for Wales (CQFW), the Qualifications and Credit Framework (QCF) and the Scottish Credit and Qualifications Framework (SCQF) to the EQF AG in January 2010. The UK countries have agreed to present separate updated referencing reports to the EQF AG in 2018/19. Scotland will present its updated referencing report, for the SCQF in December 2018. Wales and England/Northern Ireland intend to present updated referencing reports in June 2019 for the CQFW and Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF) respectively.
