Case study 3: WEAKNESSES IN THE LICENCING PROCESS

HOW FAIR AND TRANSPARENT IS THE LICENCING PROCESS?

 

A fair and transparent licensing process has clear rules and an effective licensing authority with a complete and accurate register of licences. This avoids conflicts between competing licence applicants and existing licence holders and reduces the possibility that investors will resort to corrupt conduct to have conflicts resolved in their favour.
