37.1. The Régie shall refuse to accept payment of the duties if, in its opinion, the permit holder
(1) does not meet the conditions prescribed under this Act and the regulations thereunder for the issue or renewal of the permit;
(2) is in any situation where the permit may be suspended or revoked; or
(3) has not paid the exigible annual duties before the date of expiry of the permit.
Within fifteen days of the refusal, the permit holder may apply to the Commission to have the permit renewed.
In no case may the Commission refuse to renew the permit in the cases described in the first paragraph unless the permit holder has been given an opportunity to be heard. The permit remains in force until the date of coming into force of the decision of the Commission.
