1. Read the relevant module of the DFSA Rulebook and the Regulatory Policy and Process Sourcebook before you begin your application.
2. Check you are submitting the correct application form.
3. Be as comprehensive as possible. If the DFSA needs to request further information, any delay in providing it will have an
impact on the time it takes to process your application. Although processing time varies on a case-by-case basis, the DFSA
endeavours to process all applications in a timely manner.
4. Review your application, particularly when using consultants or legal advisers - you are the one who knows your business
best. You are also responsible for any information contained in the application.
5. Submit all your documents at once - your signed application and all the requested attachments.
6. Where an application fee is applicable, ensure you have paid this.
7. Nominate a contact person within your firm to be responsible for managing the application process and to assist the DFSA
with any enquiries.
