(3) Where a person who has been charged a pre-commencement penalty fare made an appeal within the period of 21 days, beginning with the day on which that penalty fare was charged, and that appeal has not been finally determined before 6th April 2018—

(a)the person is to be treated as having made an appeal to the relevant Appeal Panel under, and in compliance with, regulation 16 on the ground set out in regulation 16(3)(d); and

(b)the relevant Appeal Panel may request any further particulars required in order to determine the appeal in accordance with the Appeal Procedure.

(a)the pre-commencement penalty fare is to be treated for the purposes of these Regulations as if it were charged on 6th April 2018; and

(5) Any person who, immediately before the coming into force of these Regulations, would be treated as an authorised collector(1) entitled to charge a penalty fare on behalf of an operator under the 1994 Regulations (“an existing collector”), is to be treated as a collector who has been authorised to charge a penalty fare on behalf of that same operator for the purpose of these Regulations.

(6) Any document issued as identification, prior to the coming into force of these Regulations, by an operator to an existing collector, for the purpose of proving the collector was authorised to collect penalty fares, shall be treated as if it were identification containing the information specified in Part 2 of Schedule 1, for a period of 90 days beginning with the day following the day on which these Regulations come into force.
