CORPORATIONS ACT 2001 - SECT 853C

Declaration by ASIC

             (1)  ASIC may declare in writing that an individual who is involved in a market licensee, a CS facility licensee, a derivative trade repository licensee or a benchmark administrator licensee, or in an applicant for a licence of any of those kinds, is disqualified for the purposes of this Division.

             (2)  ASIC may make such a declaration only if ASIC is satisfied that, because the individual is unfit to be involved in the licensee or applicant, there is a risk that the licensee or applicant will breach its obligations under this Chapter if the declaration is not made.

             (3)  In deciding whether an individual is unfit as mentioned in subsection (2), ASIC must take into account such matters as the individual's fame, character and integrity, rather than his or her competence, experience, knowledge or other such attributes.

             (4)  A declaration may be expressed to remain in effect for a specified period or until a specified event occurs. Otherwise, it remains in effect indefinitely (unless it is revoked under section 853E).
