GENE 5.3.2 Approved forms to be used and properly completed

(1) If a form is approved under rule 5.3.1 for a particular purpose, a person must:
(a) use the form for that purpose unless the Regulatory Authority permits the person not to use the form for the purpose; and
(b) properly complete the form in accordance with rule 5.3.3.
(2) If the person does not use the form for that purpose or does not properly complete the form in accordance with rule 5.3.3, the purpose is taken not to be satisfied.

Example

If a person makes an application to the Regulatory Authority but does not use the form approved under rule 5.3.1 for the application, or uses the form but does not properly complete it in accordance with rule 5.3.3, the authority may treat the application as having not been made to it and accordingly refuse to consider it.
(3) A permission under subrule (1) (a) may be given subject to conditions.
(4) Without limiting subrule (2), if:
(a) a person is required or permitted under any law, regulations or rules to give an application, report, return or other document (however described) to the Regulatory Authority;
(b) a form is approved under rule 5.3.1 for the document; and
(c) the person gives the document to the authority; but
(d) any of the following applies:
(i) the person does not use the approved form (and does not have a permission under subrule (1) (a));
(ii) the person does not properly complete the form in accordance with rule 5.3.3;
(iii) a permission under subrule (1) (a) applies, but the person contravenes a condition of the permission;
then, for the purpose of satisfying any requirement to give the document to the authority, the person is taken not to have given the document to the authority unless the authority waives the requirement.
(5) Without limiting subrule (4) and any other remedies available to the Regulatory Authority in relation to the contravention of subrule (1), the authority may require the person to give the document to the authority within a stated time using, and properly completing, the approved form.
(6) The person must comply with the requirement under subrule (5).
