Provisional suspension of licence pending examination or assessment

             (1)  If under regulation 65.250 CASA directs the holder of a licence or qualification to undergo an examination, performance assessment or medical assessment, CASA may provisionally suspend the licence or a rating or endorsement on it, or the qualification, by notice in writing to the holder.

             (2)  The provisional suspension has effect from the time the notice is served on the holder.

             (3)  As soon as practicable after the examination or assessment, CASA must either:

                     (a)  give the holder a notice under regulation 65.265 to show cause why the licence, rating, endorsement or qualification should not be cancelled or further suspended; or

                     (b)  revoke the provisional suspension and tell the holder in writing that it has done so.

             (4)  CASA may revoke the provisional suspension at any time by notice in writing.

             (5)  If CASA gives the holder a show cause notice, the provisional suspension remains in effect (unless sooner revoked) until CASA decides, or is taken to have decided, whether or not to cancel the licence, rating, endorsement or qualification, or to further suspend it.

             (6)  However, if the holder does not comply with the direction within the time allowed by the notice to do so (or any extension of that time allowed by CASA), the licence, rating, endorsement or qualification remains suspended until the holder does so.
