5. (1) An agency not in existence on the coming into force of this Ordinance shall be established only after a certificate of registration has been issued under sub-section (3) of section 4.
(2) An agency already in existence shall not be continued for more than six months from the date on which this Ordinance comes into force, unless an application for its registration has, within thirty days of such date, been made under sub-section (1) of section 4.
