(b)examine the application for its conformity with the requirements of the Act and of these Regulations and, if necessary, request the applicant to supply additional information;

(c)either–

(i)send to the applicant an assessment report prepared in accordance with Schedule 5 which indicates that the genetically modified organisms should continue to be permitted to be marketed and under which conditions; or

(ii)refuse the application, stating reasons for their decision, supported by an assessment report which indicates that the genetically modified organisms should not continue to be marketed; and

(d)ensure that a copy of the application and their assessment report is forwarded to the Commission.
