(a) the dealer’s licence as it pertains to the controlled drug to be imported or exported has expired or has been suspended or revoked;
(b) the Minister has reasonable grounds to believe that the suspension is necessary to protect public health, safety or security;
(c) the Minister has reasonable grounds to believe that the continuation of the permit would present a risk of a controlled drug being diverted to an illicit market or use; or

(2) A decision of the Minister to suspend a permit takes effect as soon as the Minister notifies the holder of the decision and provides a written report of the reasons for the suspension.
(3) A person whose permit is suspended under subsection (1) may, within 10 days after receiving the notice of suspension, provide the Minister with reasons why the suspension is unfounded.
