This rule applies where a party to a dispute being resolved by adjudication fails to comply with a request for information by the DRS operator and none of the exceptions in rule 11(2) apply.

(2)

If the party is the student claimant, the DRS operator may decline to continue consideration of the dispute.

(3)

Whoever the party is, the DRS operator may proceed to resolve the dispute on the basis that an adverse inference may be drawn from the party’s failure to comply.
