(1)  The Environment Protection Authority may, for such reasons as it thinks fit, suspend a restricted pesticide authorisation by notice in writing given to the holder of the authorisation for such period as is specified in the notice. The Authority may, by further notice given to the authorisation holder, rescind the suspension or vary the period of suspension.

(b)  the holder of the authorisation has contravened any provision of this Act or the regulations, whether or not the holder has been convicted of an offence for the contravention,
(c)  the holder of the authorisation has contravened any condition to which the authorisation is subject,
(d)  if the Authority receives information about the holder of the authorisation and the Authority is of the opinion that, had the information been received at the time when an application for the authorisation was made, it would have refused the application,
(e)  if the Authority receives information about a restricted pesticide and the Authority is of the opinion that, had the information been received at the time when an application for the authorisation was made, it would have refused the application.
(3)  The suspension or revocation of a restricted pesticide authorisation takes effect on the day on which the notice of the suspension or revocation is given to the holder of the authorisation (or on such later date as may be specified in the notice).
