Revocation of authorisation

12.—(1) The enforcing authority may at any time revoke an authorisation by notice in writing to the person holding the authorisation.

(2) Without prejudice to the generality of paragraph (1), the enforcing authority may revoke an authorisation where it has reason to believe that a prescribed process for which the authorisation is in force has not been carried on at all or has not been carried on for a period of 12 months.

(3) The revocation of an authorisation under this Article shall have effect from the date specified in the notice; and the period between the date on which the notice is served and the date so specified shall not be less than 28 days.

(4) The enforcing authority may, before the date on which the revocation of an authorisation takes effect, withdraw the notice or vary the date specified in it.

(5) The Department may, if it thinks fit in relation to an authorisation, give to the enforcing authority directions as to whether the authority should revoke the authorisation under this Article.
