  • EN-2.2 CBB Policy

    • EN-2.2.1

      The CBB uses its own inspectors to undertake on-site examinations of licenseesG as an integral part of its regular supervisory efforts. In addition, the CBB may commission special investigations of licenseesG in order to help it assess their compliance with CBB requirements, as contained in Article 121 of the CBB Law. Such investigations may be carried out either by the CBB's own officials, by duly qualified experts appointed for the purpose by the CBB ('appointed expertsG '), or a combination of the two.

      Amended: April 2012
      October 2010

    • EN-2.2.2

      Failure by licenseesG to cooperate fully with the CBB's inspectors, or its appointed expertsG or to respond to their examination reports within the time limits specified, will be treated as demonstrating a material lack of cooperation with the CBB which will result in other enforcement measures being considered, as described elsewhere in this Module. This guidance is supported by Article 114(a) of the CBB Law.

      Amended: April 2012
      October 2010

    • EN-2.2.3

      The CBB may appoint an individual or a firm as an appointed expertG . Examples of appointed expertsG are lawyers and expert witnesses. The appointment of appointed expertsG is not necessarily indicative of a contravention of CBB requirements or suspicion of such a contravention. For instance, an appointed expertG may be commissioned to provide an expert opinion on a technical matter.

      Amended: April 2012
      October 2010

    • EN-2.2.4

      Appointed expertsG report in a form and within a scope defined by the CBB, and are solely responsible to the CBB for the work they undertake in relation to the investigation concerned. The report produced by the appointed expertsG is the property of the CBB (but is usually shared by the CBB with the firm concerned). The cost of the appointed experts'G work must be borne by the licenseeG concerned.

      Amended: April 2012
      October 2010

    • EN-2.2.5

      In selecting an appointed expertG , the CBB will take into account the level of fees proposed and aim to limit these to the lowest level consistent with an adequate review of the matters at hand, given the qualifications, track record and independence of the persons concerned. Because the costs of such investigations are met by the licenseeG , the CBB makes only selective use of appointed expertsG , when essential to supplement CBB's other supervisory tools and resources.
