Division 7.2A.1     Enforceable undertakings

7.2A.01  Enforceable undertakings

         (1)   For paragraph 798K (1) (d) of the Act, ASIC may accept a written undertaking, entered into by a person who is alleged to have contravened subsection 798H (1) of the Act, as an alternative to civil proceedings.

         (2)   Without limiting subregulation (1), ASIC may accept an undertaking that includes any of the following:

                (a)    an undertaking to take specified action within a specified period;

               (b)    an undertaking to refrain from taking specified action;

                (c)    an undertaking to pay a specified amount within a specified period to the Commonwealth or to some other specified person.

Note   An undertaking may relate to an infringement notice given under Division 7.2A.2 in relation to the alleged contravention. For example, an infringement notice may require a person to enter into an undertaking; a person may enter into an undertaking to comply with an infringement notice; a person may enter into an undertaking if the person does not comply with an infringement notice or the infringement notice is withdrawn.

         (3)   If ASIC agrees, in writing, to the withdrawal or variation of the undertaking, the person who entered into the undertaking may withdraw or vary the undertaking.

         (4)   If ASIC is satisfied that the person who entered into the undertaking has breached a term of the undertaking, ASIC may apply to a Court for an order under subregulation (5).

         (5)   If the Court is satisfied that the person has breached a term of the undertaking, the Court may make one or more of the following orders:

                (a)    an order directing the person to comply with the term of the undertaking;

               (b)    an order directing the person to pay to the Commonwealth an amount not exceeding the amount of any financial benefit that the person has obtained directly or indirectly and that is reasonably attributable to the breach;

                (c)    an order directing the person to compensate another person who has suffered loss or damage as a result of the breach;

               (d)    any other order that the Court considers appropriate.

         (6)   This regulation does not affect the liability of a person to civil proceedings if ASIC does not accept an undertaking in relation to the alleged contravention of subsection 798H (1) of the Act.

Division 7.2A.2     Infringement notices

7.2A.02  Purpose of Division

         (1)   For subsection 798K (1) of the Act, the purpose of this Division is to set out a scheme under which a person who is alleged to have contravened subsection 798H (1) of the Act may do one or more of the following as an alternative to civil proceedings:

                (a)    pay a penalty to the Commonwealth;

               (b)    undertake or institute remedial measures (including education programs);

                (c)    accept sanctions other than the payment of a penalty to the Commonwealth (including public censure, suspension for no more than six months from performing certain financial services in relation to a licensed market, or disgorgement of profits);

               (d)    enter into an undertaking under regulation 7.2A.01, including an undertaking to do an action mentioned in paragraph (a), (b) or (c).

         (2)   This Division does not require ASIC to give an infringement notice to a person in relation to the alleged contravention of subsection 798H (1) of the Act.

         (3)   This Division does not affect the liability of a person to civil proceedings if ASIC does not give an infringement notice to the person in relation to the alleged contravention of subsection 798H (1) of the Act.

         (4)   This Division does not affect the liability of a person to civil proceedings if:

                (a)    ASIC gives an infringement notice to the person in relation to the alleged contravention of subsection 798H (1) of the Act; and

               (b)    either:

                          (i)    the notice is withdrawn; or

                         (ii)    the person does not comply with the notice in accordance with regulation 7.2A.08.

         (5)   This Division does not limit or otherwise affect the penalty that a Court could impose on the person for a contravention of subsection 798H (1) of the Act.

7.2A.03  Definitions for Division 7.2A.2

                In this Division:

compliance period has the meaning given by subregulation 7.2A.08 (2).

infringement notice means an infringement notice given under regulation 7.2A.04.

recipient, in relation to an infringement notice, means the person to whom ASIC gives the infringement notice or intends to give the infringement notice under regulation 7.2A.04.

7.2A.04  When infringement notice can be given

         (1)   If ASIC has reasonable grounds to believe that a person has contravened subsection 798H (1) of the Act, ASIC may give to the person an infringement notice in relation to the alleged contravention.

         (2)   ASIC may give a person an infringement notice that is in relation to more than one alleged contravention of subsection 798H (1) of the Act.

         (3)   If ASIC withdraws an infringement notice given to a person in relation to the alleged contravention of subsection 798H (1) of the Act, ASIC may give the person a new infringement notice in relation to the alleged contravention.

Example for subregulation (3)

An infringement notice given to a person in relation to an alleged contravention of subsection 798H (1) of the Act may be withdrawn, and a new infringement notice given to the person in relation to that alleged contravention, if the original infringement notice contained an error.

7.2A.05  Statement of reasons must be given
