(b)the period within which an appeal may be brought.

(5)If the authority is satisfied that the breach of the condition presents, or could present, significant risk of harm to human health, the licence holder remedial action notice may also prohibit the performance of the procedure by the licence holder until the steps specified under subsection (3)(c) have been taken.

(6)The prohibition may relate to the performance of the procedure by the licence holder in an area in Wales that is specified in the notice, or to its performance by the licence holder anywhere in Wales.
