RPP 9-5 RPP 9-5 Publication of Waivers and Modifications
DFSAis required to publish all notices concerning waivers and modifications unless it is satisfied that it is inappropriate or unnecessary to do so4.
4 Article 25(4) of the Regulatory Law 2004.
DFSAwill publish a notice in such a way as it considers appropriate for bringing the notice to the attention of:(a) those likely to be affected by it; and(b) others who may be likely to become subject to a similar notice.
The principal method of publication of waivers and modifications is by publication on the
DFSAwebsite here. The fundamental principle behind publication is transparency. This allows any person dealing with the applicant, for example, its clients and competitors, to know to what extent the relevant legislation applies to the applicant.
If an applicant believes that it is inappropriate or unnecessary for the
DFSAto publish the relief, or to publish it after a delay, or without disclosing the identity of the applicant, it should make this clear in its application.
