  • DAB decisions imposing a condition or restriction on a license, permit, or registration;
  • DAB decisions revoking a license, permit, or registration;
  • DAB decisions imposing fines;
  • DAB orders requiring cessation of unlicensed activities;
  • DAB decisions relating to the appointment of conservators;

  • Supervision of the administration of bankruptcies of banks, and
  • Appeals from persons aggrieved by the decisions of the Afghan Telecom Regulatory Authority (“ATRA”) as provided for in the Telecommunication Services Regulation Law.
