(b)left at the person’s proper address;

(c)sent to that address by post or through a document exchange; or

(d)transmitted by FAX or other means of electronic data transmission in accordance with paragraphs (3), (4) and (5).

(3) A document may be transmitted to the person concerned by FAX where that person has indicated in writing that the document will be considered to have been duly sent if it is transmitted to a specified FAX number and the document is transmitted to that number.

(4) In the case of the bus operator, an indication under paragraph (3) can be expressed to apply to any appeal to which it is a respondent.

(5) Paragraphs (3) and (4) shall apply with the appropriate modification to a transmission of electronic data other than by FAX as it applies to a transmission by FAX.

(6) Where the proper address includes a numbered box number at a document exchange, a document may be sent by leaving the document addressed to that numbered box at that document exchange or at a document exchange which transmits documents every business day to that exchange; and any document which is left at a document exchange in accordance with this paragraph shall, unless the contrary is proved, be deemed to have been delivered on the second business day following the day on which it is left.

(a)the proper address of the complainant is the address specified in the notice of complaint pursuant to paragraph (2)(b) of regulation 5 or (if no such address is so specified) the address stated pursuant to paragraph (2)(c) of that regulation; and

(b)the proper address of the bus operator in proceedings in which it is the respondent is such address as the bus operator from time to time specifies in a notice sent to the Tribunal as being the proper address in all such proceedings.

(8) If no address has been specified or stated, the proper address for the purposes of these Regulations and paragraph 4 of Schedule 1 to the Scotland Act 1998 (Transitory and Transitional Provisions) (Publication and Interpretation etc. of Acts of the Scottish Parliament) Order 1999 shall be the person’s usual or last known address.
