CASA may require medical examination of certificate holders

             (1)  If it is necessary, in the interests of the safety of air navigation, for the holder of a medical certificate to demonstrate:

                     (a)  that he or she continues to meet the relevant medical standard; or

                     (b)  that holding the certificate does not adversely affect the safety of air navigation;

CASA may direct the holder to do any 1 or more of the following:

                     (c)  submit to an examination carried out by a medical practitioner, specialist psychiatrist, clinical psychologist, audiologist, optometrist, orthoptist, orthotist, occupational therapist, specialist prosthetist or a practitioner of another kind specified in the direction;

                     (d)  submit to an examination or test by a person (not necessarily a medical practitioner) expert in the safe performance of the particular activity to which the medical certificate relates;

                     (e)  authorise the disclosure to CASA of any information or document about the holder, held by a person, organisation, body or authority referred to in subregulation (4), that may help CASA to decide whether:

                              (i)  the holder continues to meet that medical standard; or

                             (ii)  the holder's holding the certificate may adversely affect the safety of air navigation.

             (2)  For paragraph (1)(c), CASA may nominate a particular practitioner, of a kind mentioned or referred to in that paragraph, who is to carry out the examination.

                     (a)  a medical practitioner, specialist psychiatrist, clinical psychologist, audiologist, optometrist, orthoptist, orthotist, occupational therapist, specialist prosthetist or similar practitioner who has examined or treated the holder;

                     (b)  any other person or organisation (including a hospital) that has made a physical, psychological or psychiatric examination of the holder;

                     (c)  any other person or organisation (including a hospital) that has treated the holder for a medically significant condition;

                     (d)  an employer (including a former employer) of the holder;
