(1)  if the body no longer meets the requirements for certification or has failed to comply with a condition, restriction or prohibition specified in the certification;
(2)  if the Minister considers it warranted in the public interest, in the interests of children or owing to urgent circumstances;
(3)  if the Minister considers it necessary, in view of the situation in the State concerned to suspend, revoke or refuse to renew the certification;
(4)  if the competent authorities of the place for which the certification is issued no longer authorize adoption or, where applicable, have withdrawn the authorization they had granted to the body;
(5)  if the Minister considers that the body is not complying with this Act or the regulations; or
(6)  if the body or any of its officers, managers or directors has been convicted of an offence under a regulation made under the second paragraph of section 71.17 or under section 71.21 or of an offence under any of sections 135.1, 135.1.1 and 135.1.2.
The Minister may decide that the revocation or suspension of certification or the refusal to renew certification will only take effect on the expiry of a period determined by the Minister during which the body may continue its activities so as to complete the adoption processes it has begun.
The Minister may also, where the Minister considers it expedient, complete the adoption processes begun by a certified body.
