Part 6 Division 1 Section 52
52   Suspension or revocation of licence
(1)  The Environment Protection Authority may, for such reasons as it thinks fit, suspend a licence.
(2)  The Authority may revoke a licence:
(a)  if the holder of the licence ceases to have the qualifications prescribed by the regulations for the type of licence concerned, or
(b)  if the holder of the licence ceases to hold an insurance policy prescribed by the regulations for the licence, or
(c)  if the holder of the licence supplied information that was, to the holder’s knowledge, false or misleading in a material particular in, or in connection with, the application for the licence, or
(d)  if the holder of the licence has contravened any provision of relevant legislation, whether or not the holder has been convicted of an offence for the contravention, or
(e)  if the holder of the licence has contravened any condition to which the licence is subject, or
(f)  if the Authority is of the opinion that the holder of the licence is no longer a fit and proper person to hold the licence, or
(g)  if the Authority receives information about the holder of the licence and the Authority is of the opinion that, had the information been received at the time when an application for the licence was made, it would have refused the application, or
(h)  if the holder of the licence voluntarily surrenders the licence to the Authority, or
(i)  on such other grounds as may be prescribed by the regulations.
(3)  Before suspending or revoking a licence, the Authority:
(a)  must cause written notice of the proposed suspension or revocation to be given to the holder of the licence, and
(b)  must give the holder of the licence a reasonable opportunity to make representations to the Authority in relation to the proposed suspension or revocation, and
(c)  must have regard to any representations so made.
(4)  If, after having regard to any representations made by the holder of the licence, the Authority decides to proceed with the proposed suspension or revocation, the Authority must give to the holder of the licence a written notice:
(a)  stating that the licence is suspended or revoked, and
(b)  in the case of a suspension, specifying the period for which the licence is suspended, and
(c)  giving reasons for the suspension or revocation.
(5)  The suspension or revocation of a licence takes effect on the day on which the notice of the suspension or revocation is given to the holder of the licence (or on such later date as may be specified in the notice).
(6)  Subsections (3)–(5) do not apply if the Authority revokes a licence that has been voluntarily surrendered to it by the holder of the licence.
