Some NZQA ‘owned’ unit standards are quality assured differently to the others and must go through a peer review process.
This is needed to give us confidence in meeting compliance requirements with NZQA currently and in the future with the Workforce Development Councils. (WDC’s)
NZQA owned unit standards include communications and interpersonal skills units such as "9680 – Communicate within a specified organisational context", or "11101 – Collaborate within a team which has an objective".

If a workplace assessor assesses one of these standards, the peer reviewer must check the first three assessments of that standard before the assessor can reports results.
If you’re new to assessing NZQA Unit Standards, we’ve created a guide to help you gather the evidence you need to meet the national standard.

If your assessment needs a peer review, email it to [email protected]. Once the peer reviewer receives your assessment, you’ll get a report with the result of the review within 5 working days.
If your assessment meets the requirements of the unit standard, you can report the result of the assessment to us as normal.
If the peer reviewer feels your assessment needs more evidence, their report will show where you need to include that evidence. You then need to collect that evidence and re-submit it to the peer reviewer.
Once you pass three consecutive peer reviews for a particular unit standard, that unit will be added to your assessor scope and you do not need to submit any more assessments for that unit to peer review.
