7.2 Publicity about enforcement action improves the understanding of registration and licensing standards among licensed persons and potential users of the ADGM, it deters other persons from engaging in similar misconduct, and demonstrates how the Registration Authority uses its disciplinary and enforcement powers to meet its statutory objectives.
7.3 The Registration Authority’s general policy is to publicise enforcement and disciplinary actions, providing information, statements and/or notices in the form and manner it regards as appropriate and most effective.
7.4 However, the Registration Authority retains discretion regarding the approach to publication and in particular, the timing of publications of enforcement or disciplinary action, depending on the circumstances of a particular matter and in order to best advance ADGM’s interests.
