IGAPE, the support body in price regulation, recalls that private and public-private education and teaching institutions are required to comply with the 0 percent limit on adjusting the value of tuition fees and fees, established in joint executive decree 247/ 22.
"Without prejudice to the criminal sanctions applicable under the price legislation in force, infringements of the provisions of Joint Executive Decree No. economic agents give rise to criminal and civil penalties", says IGAPE in a statement.
According to the diploma, this criterion for changing the value of tuition fees was defined taking into account "the normal functioning of the education market" and aims to "leverage the level of efficiency in the provision of education and teaching services in the face of changes in the country's economic framework ".
The executive decree, dated 15 July, also indicates that this is a "provisional instruction" without specifying when it will be reviewed.
