Marginal note:Application for revocation

  •  (1) An artist in a sector may apply to the Board for an order revoking an association’s certification in respect of that sector

    • (a) on the ground that the association’s by-laws contravene the requirements of subsection 23(2), at any time; and

    • (b) on the ground that that association is no longer the most representative of artists in the sector, or has failed to make reasonable efforts to conclude a scale agreement,

      • (i) in the three months immediately before the date that the association’s certification or a renewed certification is to expire, if at least one scale agreement is in force in respect of the sector, or

      • (ii) after one year, or any shorter period that the Board fixes on application, after the date of the certification or of a renewed certification of the association, if no scale agreement is in force.

  • Marginal note:Stay of proceedings

    (2) The Board may stay any proceedings for revocation of the certification of an artists’ association under paragraph (1)(a) if the association adopts by-laws that meet the requirements of subsection 23(2) within any period that the Board may specify.

  • Marginal note:Date of revocation

    (3) Revocation of certification is effective as of the date of the Board’s determination to revoke it or, if an association fails to adopt by-laws within a period specified by the Board under subsection (2), on the expiry of that period.

  • Marginal note:Effect of revocation

    (4) Any scale agreement for a sector in respect of which the certification of an artists’ association has been revoked ceases to have effect as of the date of revocation or as of any later date that the Board may specify.
