Service of documents

Sections 93 and 94: Service of documents

292.Where Part 1 provides for notices or other documents to be given to or served on people, section 93 generally requires that this be done in person or by registered post or recorded delivery. Under section 16, regulations may state that the registered person must notify the Commission of the address it wishes to be used for the service of documents. Notices or documents sent by post can be assumed to have been delivered after three days unless the person can prove this was not the case. Under sections 93 and 94 notices may be served electronically by the Commission if the person receiving the notice has consented to receive notices in this way and has provided a suitable address for this purpose. They may be served electronically by persons other than the Commission if served in such manner as the Commission may require.
