I have been informed by the relevant Military Authorities, that the circumstances and manner in which a Certificate of Service LA89 is issued to a member of the Permanent Defence Force (PDF) on discharge, is governed by Defence Forces Regulation, A10. This Regulation sets out the Officer or prescribed military authority to direct the discharge.

In so far as is possible, all efforts are made by the military authorities to ensure that the LA89 is issued in accordance with the Regulation.
