The legislation that provides the Court and Regulatory Tribunal with its authority is QFC Law No 7 of 2005 as amended by QFC Law No 2 of 2009.
The jurisdiction of the Court and Regulatory Tribunal is provided under QFC Law No 2 of 2009. Greater definition of the scope of that law is provided in the Procedural information Section.
The Court provides a mandatory jurisdiction for the resolution of QFC related disputes, and also a consensual jurisdiction where parties can agree in a dispute Resolution clause or by mutual agreement to submit to the jurisdiction of the Court. The Regulatory Tribunal provides for appeals from the decisions of the QFC regulatory Authority. The appeal circuit of the court is the final Court of Appeal.
