SUSPENSION, REVOCATION AND REFUSAL TO ISSUE OR TO RENEW A LICENCE
8. (1) Subject to subsection (3), CFC may suspend, revoke or refuse to issue or renew a licence if the applicant or licensee fails to comply with a condition of a licence or is not in good standing with the Provincial Commodity Board or the Provincial Supervisory Board of a province.
(1.1) For the purposes of subsection (1), an applicant or licensee is not in good standing if CFC has been notified in writing by the Provincial Commodity Board or the Provincial Supervisory Board that
(a) a licence issued by the Provincial Commodity Board or the Provincial Supervisory Board to the person has been suspended and either the suspension remains in effect or no new licence has been issued to the person;
(b) a licence issued by the Provincial Commodity Board or the Provincial Supervisory Board to the person has been revoked and either the licence has not been renewed or no new licence has been issued to the person; or
(c) for any other reason the person is not in good standing with the Provincial Commodity Board or the Provincial Supervisory Board.
(1.2) CFC may refuse to issue any licence to any person who previously held a licence that was suspended or revoked by CFC.
(2) CFC may refuse to issue a licence to an applicant if any associate or affiliated body of the applicant has failed to comply with a condition of any licence issued under these Regulations.
(3) CFC shall not suspend, revoke or refuse to renew a market development licence if the licence holder establishes that the failure to comply with the conditions of the market development licence is due to an event that
(a) was not reasonably foreseeable;
(b) rendered it impossible, through no fault of the licensee, for the licensee to market the chicken for an end-use referred to in section 3 of Schedule 2; and
(c) was beyond the control of the licensee.

9. (1) If CFC intends to refuse to issue or renew a licence or to suspend or revoke a licence, CFC must give to the licensee or applicant, as the case may be, by personal service or registered mail addressed to him or her at his or her address recorded in the books of CFC, notice of its intention to refuse to issue or renew the licence or to suspend or revoke the licence, as the case may be.
(2) The notice must set out the reasons on which CFC bases its intention and must fix a time of not less than 30 days after the service or mailing of the notice for the applicant or licensee to show cause why the licence should be issued or renewed or should not be suspended or revoked, as the case may be.
(3) A decision on whether to refuse to issue or renew a licence or to suspend or revoke a licence is to be made by CFC taking into account the circumstances that gave rise to the intention referred to in subsection (1) and the representations, if any, made by the applicant or the licensee.
(4) Despite subsections (1) to (3), a market development licence is to be automatically suspended if the holder fails to comply with subsection 11.2(3) of the Canadian Chicken Marketing Levies Order.
