In the case of penalties that require a game report the referee must do two things: 1) call the penalty and 2) report the penalty to the division direction.

Therefore, if a referee is quizzed about suspensions he or she should always respond "I am sorry, I do not know about suspension lengths. You will need to contact your division director."
