(a) imposes a penalty for failure to deliver a document, so far as it imposes a penalty for continued contravention, or

no account shall be taken of the period between the delivery of the original document referred to in section 898(1) and the end of the period of 14 days after the date of service of the notice under section 898(1)(a) in relation to it (but only if, before the end of the latter period, a replacement document that complies with the requirements referred to in section 898(4)(b) is delivered to the Registrar).

(2) Nothing in this section or section 898 shall have the effect of making valid any matter which a provision of this Act or of any other enactment provides is to be void or of no effect in circumstances where a document in relation to it is not delivered to the Registrar within the period specified for the document’s delivery to him or her.
