Switchover

What happens when my centre becomes A2C compliant?

Once your centre becomes A2C compliant, you will place all your new orders via A2C. It is quite likely, however, that you will need to use both EDI (current solution) and A2C for a period of time, for example:

  • any orders submitted in EDI will receive results in EDI
  • orders submitted in EDI will need to be amended in EDI

Please be assured that your MIS Supplier and Awarding Organisation(s) will work closely with you whilst you are running both systems in order to minimise any disruption to business as usual activities. However, it is important to note the following key points:

  • It will not be possible to switchover to A2C mid-series.
  • You will be able to switch one Awarding Organisation at a time if you wish. Your MIS supplier will be able to advise on how to manage this.

Please continue to consult the A2C section of the JCQ website as the information provided is updated regularly.

If you have any queries about the transition please contact any AO representative.
