SECTION 15KU   Effect of being unaware of variation or cancellation of authority  

(1)  
If an authority has been varied in a way that limits its scope, this Part continues to apply to the authorised person to whom it relates as if it had not been varied in that way, for as long as the person:

(b) is not reckless about the existence of the variation.

(a) is unaware of the cancellation; and


(b) is not reckless about the existence of the cancellation.

(3)  
For the purposes of this section, a person is reckless about the existence of the variation or cancellation of an authority or authorisation if:

(b) having regard to the circumstances known to the person, it is unjustifiable to take the risk that the authority has not been varied or cancelled.
