o CONTROL MEASURES
A provider must at all times have and effectively employ the resources, procedures and appropriate technological systems that can reasonably be expected to eliminate as far as reasonably possible, the risk that clients, product suppliers and other providers or representatives will suffer financial loss through theft, fraud, other dishonest acts, poor administration, negligence, professional misconduct or culpable omissions.
o SPECIFIC CONTROL OBJECTIVES
A provider must, without limiting the generality of section 11, structure the internal control procedures concerned so as to provide reasonable assurance that-
(a) the relevant business can be carried on in an orderly and efficient manner;
(b) financial and other information used or provided by the provider will be reliable; and
(c) all applicable laws are complied with.
A provider must, if, and to the extent, required by the registrar maintain in force suitable guarantees or professional indemnity or fidelity insurance cover.
