                     (b)  CASA has taken into account any representations made, within the period stated in the notice, by or on behalf of the accreditation holder; and

                     (c)  there are reasonable grounds for believing that the accreditation holder:

                             (ii)  has operated an RPA or a model aircraft negligently or carelessly; or

                              (i)  give the accreditation holder notice accordingly; and

Effect of suspension

             (3)  If an accreditation is suspended under this regulation:
