                     (g)  how, and where, the infringement notice penalty may be paid;

                     (h)  a statement that if, before the end of 28 days after service of the notice, the provider notifies the ESOS agency, in the manner set out in the infringement notice, of any facts or matters that the provider believes ought to be taken into account in relation to the alleged offence:

                              (i)  time for payment of the penalty will be extended to the extent necessary to enable a decision to be made about those facts or matters; and

                             (ii)  the ESOS agency must consider the matters mentioned in subregulation 6.06(5);

                            (iii)  the provider is not taken to have been convicted of the offence;

                     (k)  a statement to the effect that, if none of the things mentioned in paragraph (f) or (h) is done within the time specified, the provider may be prosecuted for the alleged offence;

             (3)  An infringement notice may contain any other information that the ESOS agency considers necessary.

             (4)  The notice must be served on the provider not more than 12 months after the alleged commission of the offence.

Note:          The infringement notice penalty in respect of an offence is:

(a)    for an individual—4 penalty units; or

See Act, subsection 106(2).

             (2)  If application is made after the end of the 28 day period, the application must include an explanation why the alleged offender could not deal with the notice within that period.

             (3)  The ESOS agency must:

                     (a)  grant or refuse a further period; and

                     (b)  give the applicant written notice of the decision; and

the ESOS agency may make an arrangement with the provider (whether or not the period of 28 days after the date of service of the notice has ended) for the payment of the amount of the infringement notice penalty by instalments.

             (2)  The ESOS agency must:

                     (a)  grant or refuse to make an arrangement; and

                     (b)  give the provider written notice of the decision; and

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

the ESOS agency may withdraw the notice (whether or not the ESOS agency has received a notice under paragraph 6.02(2)(h)).

             (2)  If, before the end of 28 days after receiving an infringement notice, a provider gives the ESOS agency for the provider notice under paragraph 6.02(2)(h), the ESOS agency must decide whether to withdraw the infringement notice.

             (3)  The ESOS agency must:
