This chapter applies to:
a person for whom an application for approval under section 59 of the Act (Approval for particular arrangements) has been made with an application for Part IV permission (including an application for top-up permission).
AUTH 8 gives applicants an overview of how their applications for Part IV permission and for approval of a candidate under section 59 of the Act will be determined. This overview includes a summary of the decision making procedures which apply to those decisions, within the scope of AUTH, that are subject to a statutory requirement to issue formal notices.
Statutory notices include warning notices and decision notices. If the FSA proposes or decides to take certain action in respect of an application within the scope of AUTH, it is required by the Act to give a warning notice or a decision notice. These statutory notices have specified procedures and specific actions and protections.
For guidance on the FSA's procedures before it determines an application, see:
