Minimum Moderation fees (Explore/Bronze/Silver/Gold)

Your moderation booking must meet the minimum fee level, as follows:

 

Standard moderation - There is a minimum fee of £490 for a standard moderation. 

Minimum fee levels can be reached through any combination of Explore/Bronze/Silver/Gold award levels in one booking. For standard moderation, the moderation fee will either be the minimum fee or the total of the per-person moderation costs, whichever is greater.

 

Joint moderation - The minimum centre fee for each centre attending a joint moderation is £150.  In order for the moderation to go ahead, the minimum moderation fee of £490 must be reached together by all centres sharing the moderation.  If the minimum fee is not reached, a 'top up' amount to cover the difference will be charged, split between those centres taking part in the moderation.  

Minimum fee levels can be reached through any combination of Bronze/Silver/Gold award levels in one booking.

 

Postal moderation - There is no minimum fee for entry into a postal moderation.

For Bronze/Silver/Gold, there is an additional charge of £13.50 per centre for return of portfolios by registered mail.

For Explore, there is an additional charge of £8 per centre for the return of arts logs by recorded mail.
