Tasks of the Office:
The Office supports the work of the departments and therefore members of the acting panels and the members; it performs a significant part of the administration, and its staff also participate in other tasks related to the operation of the Board. The office inspects the received petitions in terms of competence. If the absence of Board’s competence can be established on the basis of the content of the petition without requesting additional documents, it rejects the petition citing absence of competence. The resolution on the rejection is signed by the chair of Financial Arbitration Board or the office director. If it is not possible to determine the lack of competence without substitution, the office director will assign the case to one of the departments.
It is the task of the Office to relieve the workload of members of the board in cases that do not require meaningful processing. Accordingly, the clients – petitioners and the financial services providers receive written information by the Office. The staff of the Office will provide information on the general rules of proceedings to anyone, on request and in writing.
