Some Developers, however, are using specialised processors which require specialised compilers which we will need to acquire on behalf of the customer to compile the source code.
This is often a good risk mitigation strategy in any event as the Customer may at some stage require such tools.

7) A rebate of the level 1 and 2 verification fees applies if a level 1 or a level 2 verification has already been done
