Tobacco Retailers Act (Northern Ireland) 2014

Section 4: Changes to and removal from the register

Provides for the registration authority to correct the register as it considers appropriate.  It also requires the registration authority to remove premises subject to a restricted premises order from the register and to remove a registered person’s entry for 5 years if that person has been convicted of an illicit tobacco offence which resulted in a custodial sentence being applied.  This section allows the registration authority to remove a person from the register if it is not satisfied that the person is carrying on a tobacco business.  If such a person is removed from the register and that person notifies the registration authority within a specified period of time that he or she is still carrying on a tobacco business, it must reinstate the person in the register.  The registration authority is required to notify a registered person of any changes to his or her entry as soon as is reasonably practicable.
