Before making an application, we expect that the applicant will carry out appropriate research on:

(a) the intention behind the Rule in question and the regulatory outcomes that the Rule aims to achieve;
(b) whether there are any precedents where we have previously granted relief, or not granted relief, from the Rule in question, including any conditions which may have been imposed; and
(c) if relief has been granted in the past, the similarities and differences between the cases where relief has previously been granted and the applicant's case.
