(b)where it appears to the licensing authority on information obtained by it after the grant of the licence or registration that the licensee or registered person is not a fit person —

(c)by agreement with the licensee or registered person.

(a)all explosives are removed from a site as soon as is practicable after revocation of a licence or registration in respect of that site;
(b)those explosives are deposited at a site which is the subject of a licence or registration which permits any storage resulting from that depositing, or suitable arrangements are made for those explosives to be disposed of; and
(c)the licence or certificate of registration is returned to the licensing authority within 28 days of the date that the revocation takes effect pursuant to regulation 18(4).
