(b) ensure conformity with the requirements associated with the security level specified in the licence; or
(c) reduce a risk to public health or safety, including the risk of a targeted substance being diverted to an illicit market or use.

(a) sets out the reasons for the addition or modification;
(b) gives the dealer an opportunity to be heard; and
(c) if applicable, specifies the corrective measures that must be carried out and the date by which they must be carried out.
