Licensing decisions: Procedures and guidance for licensing hearings
Guidance to assist Directors or the Regulatory Panel to carry out their licensing functions in accordance with our policies and procedures and to comply with the law.
- 1 - Introduction
- 2 - Preparing for the hearing
- 3 - The hearing
- 4 - The Decision making process for determining licence applications
The purpose of the hearing is to ensure that the Regulatory Panel or Director have all the information they require in order to allow them to make a determination on the licence application before them. The Panel or Director may therefore consider oral, documentary or other information which appears relevant to consideration of the case.
Adherence to time limits
It is in everyone’s interests for the time limits set out below to be adhered to. Adhering to the time limits supports proper case preparation, which in turn enhances the fairness and transparency of the process and avoids the possibility of postponement and delay. Officials should therefore seek to ensure that time limits are met.Next section
