The grounds upon which the IOC can impose an order are set out in the DA 1984 and include one or more of the following circumstances:
where the IOC is satisfied that the order is necessary for the protection of the public

where it is in the interests of the registrant
The IOC has the power to make the following orders:
suspension—suspending a respondent's registration for a period not exceeding 18 months
