  • Right to Present his Case

    • RPP 6-4-6

      A Person who will be affected by a decision of the DFSA has the right to present his case. This right arises at the point of submission of an application or notification, and continues during the process until a decision is made. Generally, the application or notification form which is required to be submitted by the Person who is asking for such a decision to be made will contain all the information relevant to the DFSA decision sought. The DFSA officer may require further information if the information provided is not complete.

    • RPP 6-4-7

      In some cases, the DFSA officer will obtain information relevant to the matter in relation to which the decision is to be made from sources other than the Person making the application or notification (external sources) in response to which the decision has to be made. As a matter of fair procedure, where information is obtained from an external source, particularly if that information has an adverse bearing (for example, information that does not support the grant of a Licence, authorisation or approval sought from the DFSA), the DFSA officer should, before acting on such information (subject to any confidentiality obligations), give to the Person making the application or notification a right to comment upon the adverse information before making his decision.
