6 SUBSCRIPTIONS AND FEES
(a) Subject to Rule 6 (b), fees, including annual membership fees, payable by Members (or any class of Member) to the Federation, the basis of, the time for and the manner of payment shall be determined by the Board.
(b) The Board may recommend to Council that fees be levied upon all State Affiliates and Individual Members by the Member States and the Member States shall collect such prescribed fees and remit them to the Federation. Such fees when levied will be in the nature of a "capitation" fee.

(d) Any Member which or who has not paid all monies due and payable by that Member to the Federation shall (subject to the Board's discretion) have all rights under these Rules immediately suspended from the expiry of the time prescribed for payment of those monies. Such rights will be suspended until such time as the monies are fully paid or otherwise in the Board's discretion. In the meantime, the Member shall have no automatic right to resign from the Federation and shall be dealt with in the Board's discretion, which includes the right to expel, suspend, disqualify, fine, discipline or retain that Member as a Member, or impose such other conditions or requirements as the Board considers appropriate.
(e) Where the Board exercises its discretion under Rule 6 (d) and imposes a penalty on a Member which or who has not paid all monies due and payable by that Member to the Federation, the rules of natural justice are hereby expressly excluded and do not apply to the imposition of that penalty.
