RPP 7-2-2

The decisions which are made by the DFSA generally fall into two main categories:

(a) first, those decisions made by the DFSA in response to an application or notification made by a Person to the DFSA to obtain a right, status or other privilege, which the Person would not have unless the DFSA grants such a right, status or other privilege. These decisions mainly involve "entry control" or "gatekeeper" type decisions. An example of such a decision is when the DFSA considers an application for a Licence or extension to an existing Licence. Such decisions are referred to as "Executive Decisions" in this chapter (see section 7-3 for further details); and
(b) second, those decisions that result from action initiated by the DFSA and that can have a significant adverse impact on the existing rights, interests and legitimate expectations of Persons. An example of such a decision is when the DFSA seeks to withdraw an Authorised Person's Licence. Such decisions are referred to as "Decision Maker Decisions" in this chapter (see section 7-4 for further details).
