This report aims to:
- Outline how we applied a flexible approach to applications.
- Explain how the minimum standards and FMC Act eligibility criteria fit together.
- Show the linkage between our view of good conduct and the minimum standards in our licensing guides.
- Signal our future focus for monitoring to current licence holders.
- Clarify the ongoing legal obligations for licence holders.
We also want to highlight where we improved our own processes to make licensing faster and more efficient for applicants. Part of this process is more frequent engagement with applicants, including face-to-face meetings early on in the application process.
