Dear Sir / Madam,
Code on Access to Information
(Application No. 040/15)
        I refer to your application dated 18 July 2015 under the Code on
Access to Information and provide in the attached Annex the information
requested in consultation with the Hong Kong Council for Accreditation of
Academic and Vocational Qualifications (HKCAAVQ) -

2.        It is noteworthy that the qualifications assessment services
provided by the HKCAAVQ assesses the educational qualifications of
individual applicants and not the quality of individual institutions, and
as such we would like to bring to your attention that the figures in the
attachment may contain multiple applications for assessment of different
qualifications by the same individual as well as applications for
assessment of qualifications awarded before the year that assessment was
conducted.

Yours faithfully,    

(Thomas T.O. CHAN)
