Registration procedure

Section 29: Warning notice

163.Section 29 allows the Commission to give a warning notice to a registered person when they have failed to comply with the relevant requirements. For example, the Commission may issue a warning notice where a registered person has failed to comply with regulations made under section 20.

164.The warning notice must set out the failure that appears to the Commission to have taken place and the requirement that appears to have been breached. It may also require the registered person to comply with the requirement within a specified timeframe, stating that further action may be taken if the failure is not put right in that time. No further action may be taken by the Commission in relation to the failure set out in the notice if the failure is remedied in that time.

165.Where the warning notice relates to a failure that has already been rectified when the notice is issued, no further action may be taken by the Commission.
