Insert:
Part 5—Infringement notices for civil penalty provisions
Division 1—Outline and operation of Part 5
16  Simplified outline of Part 5
                   The following is a simplified outline of this Part:
This Part deals with the use of infringement notices where an authorised person reasonably believes that a civil penalty provision has been contravened. Under section 80 of the Act, the regulations may provide for a person who is alleged to have contravened a civil penalty provision to pay a penalty to the Commonwealth as an alternative to civil proceedings against the person.
A provision of the Act is a civil penalty provision if the provision includes a penalty that is stated to be a civil penalty (see section 73A of the Act).
A person can be given an infringement notice in relation to a contravention of a civil penalty provision.
A person who is given an infringement notice can choose to pay an amount as an alternative to having court proceedings brought against the person for a contravention of the civil penalty provision. If the person does not choose to pay the amount, proceedings can be brought against the person in relation to the contravention.
17  Authorised person
                   The CEO may, in writing, authorise a person for:
                     (a)  the purpose of giving an infringement notice under regulation 18; and
                     (b)  any other purpose relating to an infringement notice or the administration of infringement notices.
Division 2—Infringement notices
18  When an infringement notice may be given
             (1)  If an authorised person has reasonable grounds to believe that a person has contravened a civil penalty provision, the authorised person may give to the person an infringement notice for the alleged contravention.
Note:          Under section 73B of the Act, as in force when this regulation commenced, the CEO may apply to a relevant court for an order that a person, who is alleged to have contravened a civil penalty provision, pay the Commonwealth a pecuniary penalty. The CEO must make the application within 4 years of the alleged contravention.
             (2)  A single infringement notice must relate only to a single contravention of a single provision unless subregulation (3) applies.
             (3)  An authorised person may give a person a single infringement notice relating to multiple contraventions of a single provision if:
                     (a)  the provision requires the person to do a thing within a particular period or before a particular time; and
                     (b)  the person fails or refuses to do that thing within that period or before that time; and
                     (c)  the failure or refusal occurs on more than 1 day; and
                     (d)  each contravention is constituted by the failure or refusal on one of those days.
Note:          For continuing offences, see subsection 4K(2) of the Crimes Act 1914.
19  Matters to be included in an infringement notice
             (1)  An infringement notice must:
                     (a)  be identified by a unique number; and
                     (b)  state the day on which it is given; and
                     (c)  state the name of the person to whom the notice is given; and
                     (d)  state the name and contact details of the person who gave the notice, and that the person is an authorised person for the purposes of issuing the infringement notice; and
                     (e)  give brief details of each alleged contravention, including:
                              (i)  the civil penalty provision that was allegedly contravened; and
                             (ii)  the maximum penalty that a court could impose if the provision were contravened; and
                            (iii)  the time (if known) and day of, and the place of, the alleged contravention; and
                      (f)  state the amount that is payable under the notice; and
                     (g)  give an explanation of how payment of the amount is to be made; and
                     (h)  state that, if the person to whom the notice is given pays the amount within 28 days after the day the notice is given, then (unless the notice is withdrawn) the person will not be liable to be prosecuted in a court for an alleged contravention; and
                      (i)  state that payment of the amount is not an admission of guilt or liability; and
                      (j)  state that the person may apply to the CEO to have the period in which to pay the amount extended; and
                     (k)  state that the person may choose not to pay the amount and, if the person does so, the person may be prosecuted in a court for an alleged contravention; and
                      (l)  set out how the notice can be withdrawn; and
                    (m)  state that if the notice is withdrawn the person may be prosecuted in a court for the alleged contravention; and
                     (n)  state that the person may make written representations to the CEO seeking the withdrawal of the notice.
Note:          A single infringement notice may relate to multiple contraventions of a single provision: see subregulation 18(3).
             (2)  The amount to be stated in the notice for the purposes of paragraph (1)(f) for an alleged contravention of a civil penalty provision by the person must be the lesser of:
                     (a)  one‑fifth of the maximum penalty that a court could impose on the person for the alleged contravention; and
                     (b)  12 penalty units where the person is an individual, or 60 penalty units where the person is a body corporate.
Note:          See subsection 80(2) of the Act.
20  Extension of time to pay amount
             (1)  A person to whom an infringement notice has been given may apply to the CEO for an extension of the period mentioned in paragraph 19(1)(h).
             (2)  If the application is made before the end of that period, the CEO may, in writing, extend that period. The CEO may do so before or after the end of that period.
             (3)  If the CEO extends that period, a reference in this Part, or in a notice or other instrument under this Part, to the period mentioned in paragraph 19(1)(h) is taken to be a reference to that period so extended.
             (4)  If the CEO does not extend that period, a reference in this Part, or in a notice or other instrument under this Part, to the period mentioned in paragraph 19(1)(h) is taken to be a reference to the period that ends on the later of the following days:
                     (a)  the day that is the last day of the period mentioned in paragraph 19(1)(h);
                     (b)  the day that is 7 days after the day the person was given notice of the CEO’s decision not to extend.
             (5)  The CEO may extend the period more than once under subregulation (2).
21  Withdrawal of an infringement notice
Representations seeking withdrawal of notice
             (1)  A person to whom an infringement notice has been given may make written representations to the CEO seeking the withdrawal of the notice.
Withdrawal of notice
             (2)  The CEO may withdraw an infringement notice given to a person (whether or not the person has made written representations seeking the withdrawal).
             (3)  When deciding whether or not to withdraw an infringement notice (the relevant infringement notice), the CEO:
                     (a)  must take into account any written representations seeking the withdrawal that were given by the person to the CEO; and
                     (b)  may take into account the following:
                              (i)  whether a court has previously imposed a penalty on the person for a contravention of a civil penalty provision that is subject to an infringement notice under this Part;
                             (ii)  the circumstances of the alleged contravention;
                            (iii)  whether the person has paid an amount, stated in an earlier infringement notice, for a contravention of a civil penalty provision that is subject to an infringement notice under this Part if the contravention is constituted by conduct that is the same, or substantially the same, as the conduct alleged to constitute the contravention in the relevant infringement notice;
                            (iv)  any other matter the CEO considers relevant.
Notice of withdrawal
             (4)  If the CEO withdraws an infringement notice given to a person, the CEO must give notice of the withdrawal of the infringement notice to the person. The withdrawal notice must state:
                     (a)  the person’s name and address; and
                     (b)  the identifying number of the infringement notice; and
                     (c)  the day the infringement notice was given; and
                     (d)  that the infringement notice is withdrawn.
             (5)  The withdrawal notice may also state that the person may be prosecuted in a court for the alleged contravention.
Note:          The infringement notice may be withdrawn in circumstances in which the person would not be prosecuted in a court for the alleged contravention (for example, if the notice is given to the wrong person).
Refund of amount if infringement notice withdrawn
             (6)  If:
                     (a)  the CEO withdraws the infringement notice; and
                     (b)  the person has already paid the amount stated in the notice;
the CEO must refund to the person an amount equal to the amount paid.
22  Effect of payment of amount
             (1)  If the person to whom an infringement notice for an alleged contravention of a provision is given pays the amount stated in the notice before the end of the period mentioned in paragraph 19(1)(h):
                     (a)  any liability of the person for the alleged contravention is discharged; and
                     (b)  the person may not be prosecuted in a court for the alleged contravention; and
                     (c)  the person is not regarded as having admitted guilt or liability for the alleged contravention; and
                     (d)  the person is not regarded as having been convicted of the alleged offence.
             (2)  Subregulation (1) does not apply if the notice has been withdrawn.
23  Effect of Part 5
                   This Part does not:
                     (a)  require an infringement notice to be given to a person for an alleged contravention of a civil penalty provision enforceable under this Part; or
                     (b)  affect the liability of a person for an alleged contravention of a civil penalty provision if:
                              (i)  the person does not comply with an infringement notice given to the person for the contravention; or
                             (ii)  an infringement notice is not given to the person for the contravention; or
                            (iii)  an infringement notice is given to the person for the contravention and is subsequently withdrawn; or
                     (c)  prevent the giving of 2 or more infringement notices to a person for an alleged contravention of a civil penalty provision; or

Note:          See paragraph 3.26B(6)(g).
