of subsection 16(3)  of the Act, a revocation is not invalid merely  because  of a failure  to comply  with subsection 16(2)  of the Act

Note 2        Under  section 16A  of the Act, the notice  of revocation of the authorisation may state that the authorisation continues in effect  in relation to a specified matter  or specified period,  as though the revocation had not happened, for the purposes of a specified provision of the Act or the regulations, or a specified provision of another law of the Commonwealth that is administered by APRA,  or a specified provision of the prudential standards, and the statement has effect  accordingly.
