30.1. As an exceptional measure, following a request with reasons from a regional authority, the Minister may authorize the amendment of a fire safety cover plan in force in order to extend one or more deadlines contained in the plan.
The authorization may be granted if the amendment does not change any of the public protection objectives and if the regional authority has demonstrated that, for valid reasons, it and the local municipalities concerned are unable to meet the deadlines.
If the Minister grants the request, an authorization is issued, which is added to the certificate of conformity.
Without further formality or delay, the amendment to the plan is adopted by the council of the regional authority and comes into force on the date the authorization of the Minister is issued.
