If a Financial Services and Credit Panel gives a relevant provider a warning or reprimand under subsection (1) , the panel must, at the same time, give a copy of the warning or reprimand to:

(a)  ASIC; and

(b)  if the relevant provider is authorised to provide personal advice to retail clients, on behalf of a financial services licensee, in relation to relevant financial products - the licensee.

921T(3)  
The warning or reprimand, and each copy of the warning or reprimand given to a person under subsection (2) , must be accompanied by a statement of reasons for the decision to give the warning or reprimand.

921T(4)
