The applicant is responsible for providing accurate information. The signing of the declaration indicates an undertaking by the applicant to keep MDS informed and updated, in writing, of any changes to their Personal details and Professional circumstances. Failure to notify changes could result in the suspension of the benefits of the membership and/or its termination. MDS would only assist with any matter arising from an incident from the date of commencement. No assistance will be provided in a matter if the member might have been aware of the matter before the commencement of the membership. MDS may approach the previous professional organisation of the applicant for the history of assistance for which your consent will be requested below. When leaving their previous professional organisation, the applicant should notify them of any adverse incident of which the applicant is aware that could become a request for assistance. The applicant should also check with the previous professional organisation whether any closing payment is required to secure 'run-off' cover for any claims which may arise from an incident pre-dating the end of the member's subscription with the previous organisation.
Withdrawal of application and Cancellation of subscription:
If the application for membership is withdrawn within fourteen calendar days after submission or renewal, a full refund of the subscription paid will be made and the membership would be deemed to be null and void. Thereafter, a minimum period of 6 months of the annual membership period will apply. After the commencement of the membership period, if a cancellation request is received in the first 5 completed months of membership, and where a member has not sought or received any advice from MDS, a refund of the final six months of membership will be allowed. Any cancellation requests received after 5 months of the completed annual membership period will not be eligible for any refunds. If advice has been provided at any time during the membership period then the member will be liable for full payment of the annual subscription fees. Cancellation requests will only be processed when a notice is provided by the member in writing (electronic mail). MDS reserves the right to cancel any membership with immediate effect if there is any breach of the expressed or implied terms and conditions of the membership plan, or when membership has been obtained under false pretences. In such cases there is no automatic right to refund of subscription fees paid or to any advice and representation by MDS.
Please note that membership is subject to approval. Processing of payment is not proof of membership approval. MDS will write to you once your membership is approved and date of commencement of the same.
