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.
