If the claim cannot be registered--notice of decision

             (1)  If the Registrar does not accept the claim for registration, the Registrar must, as soon as practicable, give the applicant and the Federal Court written notice of his or her decision not to accept the claim, including:

                     (a)  if the Registrar does not accept the claim because the Registrar is notified by the NNTT under section 190E that he or she should not do so--a copy of the NNTT's statement of reasons for its decision; or

                     (b)  otherwise--a statement of the Registrar's reasons for his or her decision.

             (2)  If the only reason why the claim is not accepted for registration is that the condition in subsection 190B(7) (which is about a physical connection with the claim area) is not satisfied, the notice must advise the applicant of the applicant's right to make an application to the Federal Court under section 190F and of the power of the Court to make an order in accordance with that section in respect of the application.

                     (a)  whether, in the opinion of the Registrar, the claim for registration satisfies all of the conditions in section 190B; and

                     (b)  whether, in the opinion of the Registrar, it is not possible to determine whether the claim for registration satisfies all of the conditions in section 190B because of a failure to satisfy section 190C.
