Payment of one penalty treated as payment of connected penalties

6.—(1) Where a person (“A”) pays the penalty in accordance with Article 5, a British sea fishery officer must give a notice (a “notice of deemed payment”) to all other persons who have been issued with a connected penalty notice.

(2) A penalty notice is a “connected penalty notice” if the penalty offence to which that notice relates is the same as, and arises out of the same set of circumstances as, the penalty offence to which a penalty notice issued to another person relates.

(3) A notice of deemed payment must—

(a)be sent by post or delivered by hand;

(b)indicate that A has paid the penalty for A’s connected penalty notice;

(c)indicate that the penalty notice issued to the recipient of the notice of deemed payment will be treated as having been paid unless that person gives written notice indicating that it should not be so treated (a “notice of objection”); and

(d)state the name and address of the person to whom any notice of objection must be given.

(4) A notice of objection must be sent by post or delivered by hand to the person stated in paragraph (3)(d) within—

(a)28 days beginning with the date on which the penalty notice was issued, or

(b)if later, five days beginning with the date on which the notice of deemed payment was given.

(5) If no notice of objection is given in accordance with this Article, the penalty notice issued to a person who has been given a notice of deemed payment is to be treated as having been paid.
