Vaidya v The General Medical Council - Harassment by qualifications bodies [2011] EAT

A claim of harassment by a Qualifications Body under Race Relations Act 1976 (or, now, Equality Act 2010) applies only in relation to acts of harassment done by that body in relation to an authorisation or qualification conferred by it.
