National Asset Management Agency Act 2009

124.

Review by valuation panel.

124.— (1) The function of the valuation panel is to review whether the aggregate market value of an acquired portfolio is correct. In carrying out that review, the test to be applied by the valuation panel is whether the participating institution concerned has established, as a matter of probability, and taking into account the degree of expertise and specialist knowledge possessed by NAMA, and taking the process as a whole, that the determination of the aggregate market value was vitiated by a serious and significant error or a series of such errors.

(2) For the avoidance of doubt, for the purposes of a review under subsection (1) , the market value of an acquired bank asset is its market value as at the date or event specified by NAMA under section 73 .

(3) The valuation panel shall advise the Minister of its determination, including of the aggregate market value, and the reasons for it.

(4) The panel shall give its advice to the Minister in relation to a dispute under section 122 no later than 90 days after receiving the material, comments, responses and any additional information under section 123 , or a longer period specified by the Minister by notice in writing, if he or she considers that to do so is warranted by exceptional circumstances.
