Under the DPS Ordinance
, certain decisions of the Board and the HKMA can be the subject of an appeal to the Deposit Protection Appeals Tribunal
(the Tribunal). These include the Board's decisions regarding whether a foreign bank branch can be exempted from participation in the DPS, the amount of contribution payable by a Scheme member, and the amount of compensation payable to a depositor, as well as the HKMA's decision to impose an asset maintenance requirement on a Scheme member. Sittings of the Tribunal will be convened only on a need basis.
