19. Where both related associations of employees apply for the issue of a licence covering a given trade or occupation in a given region, the Bureau informs them and requires their observations, within the time it allows which may not be less than 10 days. Those observations pertain to the reasons explaining the absence of an agreement provided for in section 11, to the means at the disposal of the association or that it intends to take to fulfil its referral functions effectively, and to any other fact likely to support the licence application.
The decision concerning the issue of the licence is made not later than 30 days after the end of the period allocated to the related associations of employees to present their observations.
Sections 13 to 17 then apply, with the necessary modifications, which include the sending of the prior notice provided for in section 16 to both related associations of employees.
