If infringement notice disputed
Whether or not a notice is received under subregulation (2), the Director, if satisfied that in all the circumstances it is proper to do so, may withdraw an infringement notice.

If, before the end of 28 days after receiving an infringement notice, a person gives the Director notice under paragraph 14.03 (2) (h), the Director must decide whether to withdraw the infringement notice.

The Director must:

withdraw, or refuse to withdraw, the notice; and

give the applicant written notice of the decision; and

if the decision is a refusal — mention in the notice the reasons for refusal.

If the Director decides to refuse to withdraw an infringement notice, notice of that decision must state:

that if the amount of the infringement notice penalty is paid within 28 days after notice of the decision is given to the person, the person will not be prosecuted for the alleged offence; and

that if that amount is not so paid, the person may be prosecuted for the alleged offence.

In making a decision, the Director must consider:

the facts or matters set out in the notice (if any) given under paragraph 14.03 (2) (h); and

the circumstances in which the offence mentioned in the notice is alleged to have been committed; and

whether the person has been convicted previously of an offence against these Regulations; and

whether an infringement notice has previously been given to the person for an offence of the same kind as the offence mentioned in the notice; and

any other matter the Director considers relevant to the decision.

Part VIIC of the Crimes Act 1914 includes provisions that, in certain circumstances, relieve persons from the requirement to disclose spent convictions and require persons aware of such convictions to disregard them.
