The offshore implementation, of the programme, must satisfy the accreditation/recognition criteria and requirements of both signatories.
(ii)
Differentiated Programme offered within the jurisdiction of a signatory:
Accreditation/recognition of the off-shore programme offering must be undertaken by the signatory of the jurisdiction in which the programme is delivered in consultation with the signatory of the jurisdiction in which the provider is headquartered.
(iii)

Undifferentiated or Differentiated Programme offered within a non-Accord jurisdiction:
Accreditation/recognition of the off-shore programme offering must be undertaken by the signatory of the jurisdiction in which the programme is headquartered.
