A Technical Administrator is a person who accepts to carry out specific functions relating to the operation, of the whole or a designated part, of an Innovative Technology Arrangement.
Any Innovative Technology Arrangement subject to certification by the MDIA must have a registered Technical Administrator in office at all times who is able to demonstrate to the MDIA, the Innovative Technology Arrangement’s ability to satisfy certain specific criteria, which include:
- All pre-requisites required for certification;
- The Innovative Technology Arrangement’s ability to meet standards on a continuing basis and to address critical matters; and
- The Innovative Technology Arrangement’s ability to vary parameters or functionalities.
However, the Authority acknowledges that, in specific Innovative Technology Arrangement implementations, the functionality to grant the Technical Administrator and the Authority, where applicable, power to intervene, as required in Article 8(4)(c)(iv) and Article 8(4)(d)(iii) of the ITAS Act, may not be technically feasible or justifiable. In this regard, when it is clearly justified as to why the implementation of such functionality cannot be achieved, the Authority reserves the right to vary the power to intervene. In doing so, subject to all other requirements being successfully met by the Applicant, the Authority may issue an Innovative Technology Arrangement certification that clearly states that the requirements of Article 8(4)(c)(iv) and Article 8(4)(d)(iii) of the ITAS Act are not being achieved. In addition, the Applicant shall be required to disclose such limitation to all users as part of the Terms of Service.
