(3) Subsection (2)(d) shall not apply in relation to any failure to comply with a provision of this Act, the breach of which is an offence under this Act.
(4) The Commission shall, in any direction requiring the payment of a financial penalty, specify the date before which the financial penalty is to be paid, being a date not earlier than the end of the period within which an application for reconsideration of the direction, or an appeal against the direction, may be brought under section 31 or 34, respectively.
(5) The interest payable on the outstanding amount of any financial penalty imposed under subsection (2)(d) and for payment by instalment (as may be directed by the Commission in its discretion) of any financial penalty imposed under subsection (2)(d) shall be at such rate as the Commission may direct, which shall not exceed the rate prescribed in the Rules of Court in respect of judgment debts.
