The operational guidance for payment distributors details the process and theory of DAS. This guidance will assist payment distributors if they are involved in a DAS DPP and provide details and explanations regarding the procedures involved in DAS. In addition the guidance provides instruction on the responsibilities and duties of the payment distributors while they are participating in DAS DPP. This guidance does not itself have the force of law. Interpretation of the law is a matter for the courts rather than the Scottish Government .
The user guides will assist the payment distributor in providing a step by step guide on the processes that they will carry out on DASH.
