Due to concerns arising from the proposed assessment dates for the time critical assessments, the conducting and participation in the assessments are banned for a period of at least 30 days.

Members maintain that the date advised for assessment is premature given the absence of a training package for skills maintenance or improvement. This ban shall apply to all members stationed in the Katoomba and Wollongong communications centres and all members engaged in administering the assessment and will remain in force until further notice.
