Fit and Proper Requirements for Appointed SFA/FAA Representatives

About This Course

As different appointments and designations entail different responsibilities, the Fit and Proper Guidelines would be applied in a manner and to the extent that is suitable to the relevant circumstances. The onus is on each appointed SFA/FAA representative to establish that it or he/she is a fit and proper person rather than for MAS to show otherwise.
