The addressees of the sanctioning or cancellation procedure are entitled to request a personal hearing within forty-five days (or ninety days for those who have their registered office or residence abroad) from the date of notification of the letter of objection or initiation of the cancellation procedure.
The above letter indicates the competent office to which the request for hearing should be addressed; the division of responsibilities is summarized below:
The request for a hearing must be submitted using the following form, which must be downloaded and filled out in full.
The request for hearing must be accompanied by a copy of the applicant's identity document and any proxy and identity document of the delegated party.
The competent Office will then send a summons, in which the date of the hearing will be indicated; the applicant must confirm, within 7 days of notification of the convocation itself, participation in the hearing. Any waiver of participation in the hearing must also be communicated promptly in writing, again by certified e-mail (PEC), to the competent Office.
The hearing, as provided for by the Supplementary Regulations concerning the sanctioning and cancellation procedure, is carried out by means of video-conference on a computer platform and in the manner indicated by the Body following receipt of the request for hearing.
Exceptionally, the member may ask to be received in person at the headquarters of the Body, supporting his request with adequate reasons, which will be evaluated by the competent Office for the purposes of the possible acceptance of the request.
