      (2) If a person to whom this regulation applies does not hold a community services card, the Director-General may, instead of issuing a community services card to him or her, issue to him or her in accordance with the SuperGold Card regulations a SuperGold Card bearing a code indicating his or her entitlement to a community services card.
