Purpose

These statutory notices have specified procedures and specific actions and protections.

This chapter is only a summary and is not part of the FSA's formal statement of procedure under section 395 of the Act (The FSA's procedures). An applicant needing further details of the FSA's procedure should refer to the Decision making manual (DEC).
