(2) A complaint brought under paragraph (1) must be brought within a period of six months beginning with the date of the alleged failure.

(3) Where the CAC finds the complaint well-founded it shall make a decision to that effect and may make an order requiring the defaulter to take such steps as are necessary to comply with regulation 16(1A), 19A, 19B or 19E(2), as the case may be.

(6) Where such an application is made, the Appeal Tribunal shall issue a written penalty notice to the defaulter requiring it to pay a penalty to the Secretary of State in respect of the failure.

(7) Paragraph (6) shall not apply if the Appeal Tribunal is satisfied, on hearing the representations of the defaulter, that the failure resulted from a reason beyond the defaulter’s control or that it has some other reasonable excuse for its failure.
