Benzodiazepines and Other Targeted Substances Regulations
Marginal note:Issuance of a registration number
72 (1) Subject to subsection (2), the Minister must, after examining the information and documents required under sections 11 and 71, issue a registration number for the test kit to the applicant if the applicant demonstrates that the test kit is designed to be used solely for a medical, laboratory, industrial, educational, law enforcement or research purpose.
(2) The Minister must refuse to issue a registration number if the Minister has reasonable grounds to believe that
(a) the test kit poses a significant security, public health or safety hazard, including the risk of the targeted substance in the test kit being diverted to an illicit market or use, because
(i) the total amount of the targeted substance in the test kit is too high, or
(ii) the adulterating or denaturing agent in the test kit is not likely to prevent or deter consumption of the targeted substance in the test kit by a human or animal or the administration of that substance to a human or animal; or
(b) the test kit is likely to be used for a purpose other than those set out in subsection (1).
