The CBB is conscious of the impact that assessing someone as not 'fit and proper' may have on an individual approved person. Such assessments are carefully reviewed in the light of all relevant facts. The criteria used in reaching a decision include the following:

(a) The extent to which the factors set out in Chapter AU-3 have not been met;
(b) The extent to which the person has deliberately or recklessly breached requirements of the CBB Law or Volume 5 (Specialised Licensees);
(c) The person's past compliance record and conduct following any such breaches;
(d) The length of time since factors indicating a lack of fitness or propriety occurred; and
(e) The risk the person poses to licensees and their customers.
