3.3 Timeliness of Determinations
Section 61 of the SRCA requires a determination to be 'served' (i.e. dispatched to the client) 'as soon as practicable' after the decision is made.
In fact, in the RCG context, there is no reason why the date of Determination can not also be the date that Determination is dispatched to the client.
Furthermore, once the Delegate has arrived at a decision based on the evidence, the only reason for delay should be to await the client's response to a warning of impending adverse decision (see 3.2 above). In those cases where the client has not made a further submission within the 28 days allowed, the Delegate should determine the matter promptly.
