ASIC may give direction to correct information etc.
ASIC may, in writing, direct the liquidator to do one or more of the following within a period of 10 business days after the direction is given:

(a) give a direction under subsection
(direction not to accept further appointments);
(b) apply to the Court for an order, under subsection
of this Schedule or any other provision that is relevant, directing the liquidator to comply with the requirement within such time as is specified in the order.
Direction is not a legislative instrument
A direction under subsection (2) is not a legislative instrument.
