Under the GEMS Act (the Act), the GEMS Regulator (the Regulator) may suspend  or cancel  a model’s registration for a variety of reasons.

This means that the model is no longer registered under the Act against the relevant determination and cannot be lawfully supplied.

When this happens, the registrant must take all reasonable steps to ensure that any person the registrant is aware might supply products of the models covered by the registration is informed of the suspension or cancellation.

The downstream supplier is then responsible for ensuring that they do not contravene section 17 of the Act by supplying an unregistered product.

To assist suppliers to comply with their obligations under section 17 of the Act, the Regulator publishes a list of models with suspended or cancelled registrations.
