|28 June 2016||3-1 Duties and responsibilities|
Section 18.104.22.168 has been updated.
The previous wording could have been interpreted as the Transport Agency being required to give 21 days notice before imposing any remedial action (such as training, revisiting the VIRM requirements etc) where an inspecting organisation or vehicle inspector fails to comply with requirements. It is in everyone’s best interests that there is no delay in ordering remedial action.
The 21 days notice only applies to suspension (excluding immediate suspension) and revocation.
