RPP 6-5-12

In certain circumstances a Decision Maker is not required to follow the procedures relating to prior representations when exercising specific DFSA powers. These circumstances are set out in the relevant Law and Rules. For example, the DFSA is not obliged to provide an Affected Person with a prior opportunity to make representations where any delay likely to arise from giving such a right is prejudicial to the interests of the DIFC. These circumstances can sometimes apply in the decision to:

(a) withdraw an authorisation in relation to one or more Financial Services for which an Authorised Person is authorised under a Licence (see Article 50);
(b) withdraw a Licence of an Authorised Person (see Article 51);
(c) impose conditions and restrictions, impose additional conditions and restrictions, or vary or withdraw existing conditions and restrictions on a Licence of an Authorised Person (see Article 49);
(d) restrict a Person from performing one or more Licensed Functions or suspend or withdraw Authorised Individual status from such a Person (see Article 58(2));
(e) impose conditions and restrictions, impose additional conditions and restrictions, or vary or withdraw existing conditions and restrictions on Authorised Individual status (see Article 57);
(f) restrict Persons from performing functions (see Article 58(1)); and
(g) remove a Recognised Person from the list of Recognised Persons (see Article 37(7) of the Markets Law and REC Rule 4.4.4).
