The requirements in this Chapter only apply to 'material' outsourcing arrangements. These are arrangements that, if they failed in any way, would pose significant risks to the on-going operations of a licensee, its reputation and/or quality of service provided to its customers. For instance, the outsourcing of all or a substantial part of functions such as customer sales and relationship management, settlements and processing, IT and data processing, internal audit and financial control, would normally be considered 'material'.
