7. Where the competent regulatory authority has valid reasons to believe that a site described in section 6 poses such a disaster risk that the carrying out of work or the use of immovables on the site ought to be prohibited or made subject to stricter authorization conditions than those prescribed by law, any application for authorization to carry on such activities, even if received before the discovery of the risk, must be refused.
However, an application that meets the legal requirements but is refused for the reason set out in the first paragraph must be granted if the prohibition or the additional authorization conditions, as the case may be, is or are not rendered effective within six months after the date of the application.
