    • (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
