Rule 12 – Applications not in order

(1) If an application is not in order, the Authority may raise such requisitions as it considers necessary, specifying a period within which the applicant must comply with the requisitions.

(2) If the applicant fails to comply with the requisition within that period or such further period as the Authority may permit, the Authority may treat the application as abandoned and cancel it. 

(3) If the Authority considers the application to be substantially defective, it may reject it immediately or at any time thereafter.
