Discussions with the Office of the Scottish Charity Regulator
As registered charities, colleges are required to apply to the Office of the Scottish Charity Regulator (OSCR) for consent on merger and to change the name. Consent from OSCR must be given prior to the merger taking place.
Following the merger, the relevant colleges will need to apply to OSCR (www.oscr.org.uk) to wind up.
This guidance was developed in 2012 and will be reviewed in 2017.
