(2) The licensing authority may and, where appropriate, shall, subject to paragraph (3) and subject to and in accordance with the relevant Community provisions, by notice in writing to the holder of a traditional herbal registration for a traditional herbal medicinal product, forthwith or from a date specified in the notice, suspend the use, supply or marketing within the United Kingdom of the product to which the registration relates for a period specified in the notice.
(3) In any case where the relevant Community provisions permit or require the suspension of the use, supply or marketing of a product until some decision or similar action is taken by the Community, the licensing authority may, instead of specifying a period in the notice, provide that the suspension is to apply until further notice.

(a)inform wholesalers, retailers, medical practitioners, patients and others who may be in possession of relevant products of the revocation or suspension, the reasons for it, and the action (if any) to be taken to restrict or prevent further use, supply or marketing;
(b)withdraw from the market in the United Kingdom and recover possession of such products within the time and for the period specified in the notice.
(6) The licensing authority may require the holder of the traditional herbal registration to withdraw from the market in the United Kingdom specified batches only of a product to which a notice under paragraph (5) applies.
(7) Schedule 2 shall have effect to regulate the procedure for receiving advice and representations before revocation, variation or suspension of a traditional herbal registration, and for notifying the holder of that registration in accordance with the preceding provisions of this regulation.
