Direct evidence of this kind may be supplemented, where necessary, by professional discussion, reflective accounts or witness testimony. Simulations are not allowed.To generate evidence, trainees must be carrying out external quality assurance of organisations or assessment centres.

Remote observation is not acceptable for assessment of EQAs; in other words, the assessor and the trainee EQA must be in the same location at the same time when observations are being carried out.
