Suspension and revocation of approval

6.—(1) The Secretary of State may suspend or revoke his approval of any export slaughterhouse, export cutting premises, export cold store or transhipment centre and require the withdrawal of the equipment for the application of the health mark if after an inspection of or an enquiry into, and a report on, the premises by a veterinary officer and, in the case of revocation of approval, after consultation with the local authority and the occupier, he is satisfied in respect of these premises that the requirements of these Regulations are no longer or have not been complied with, and no action has been taken to ensure that a similar breach does not recur or that the condition attached to the approval of those premises referred to in regulation 4(8) has not been observed.

(2) The Secretary of State shall forthwith notify the occupier and the local authority of his decision under paragraph (1) of this regulation to suspend or revoke his approval of any premises, of the date on which the suspension or revocation is to take effect and of the reasons for such suspension or revocation.

(3) Any notification under paragraph (2) of this regulation shall be given in writing in the case of any revocation of approval and may be given orally or in writing in the case of any suspension of approval, and where any such notification is given orally it shall be confirmed in writing.

(4) Where the Secretary of State has suspended approval of any premises under this regulation, those premises shall be treated throughout the period of suspension as if approval had not been granted under regulation 4.

(5) Where the suspension of approval of any premises under this regulation is not expressed to end on a specified date it may, if the Secretary of State thinks fit, be ended by notice given by him to the occupier, and the Secretary of State shall notify the local authority in writing that the suspension of approval of the premises has been ended.
