The requirements set out the minimum fit and proper criteria that a financial institution must adopt to assess the fitness and propriety of candidates. These requirements are also intended to set out the minimum fit and proper criteria and the process that financial institutions have to adopt to assess the fitness and propriety of candidates for positions that do not require the non-objection of SAMA.
