A: Active IQ qualifications are on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF) which is regulated by the exams regulator Ofqual in England. Wales and Northern Ireland have their own regulator called Qualifications Wales and CCEA respectively. Active IQ qualifications are recognised in England, Wales and Northern Ireland.

Scotland has its own framework: the Scottish Credit and Qualifications Framework (SCQF). Although they are not on the SCQF, Active IQ qualifications are widely respected by learners, training organisations and employers in Scotland.

In Europe, the European Qualifications Framework (EQF) acts as a translation device to make national qualifications more readable across Europe. Although there is currently no international mechanism to compare qualifications in this way, UK qualifications are well-regarded all over the world.
