Preferably the experts have prior experience in the accreditation and evaluation of institutions of higher education. The Registry also includes representatives from professional or other scientific associations who can appreciate the contribution of studies to professional practice.

Additional suggestions for the registration of experts may be made by higher education institutions and the HQA. The HQA at a special Council meeting decides whether or not to approve applications.
