The QFC Regulatory Tribunal is a specialist appeals body, established pursuant to the Law of the Qatar Financial Centre, designed to hear complaints raised by individuals and corporate bodies against decisions of the QFC Authority, Regulatory Authority and other QFC Institutions.
The Regulatory Tribunal, which is made up of international legal and judicial regulatory law experts, is a wholly independent body.
The Regulatory Tribunal is serviced by a Registry team, headed by the Registrar, which is responsible for the case management of appeals that come before the Regulatory Tribunal. The Registrar and his team of expert case managers and support staff are available to assist Regulatory Tribunal-users who have queries in relation to commencing an appeal, or who are seeking assistance as to the practices and procedures to be adopted before the Regulatory Tribunal.
The judges of the QFC Regulatory Tribunal are appointed to the Regulatory Tribunal based upon their legal and judicial expertise in the resolution of regulatory disputes. They come from a variety of civil and common law jurisdictions. The judges of the Regulatory Tribunal observe a Judicial Code of Conduct, the guiding principles of which are independence, impartiality, integrity and propriety.
