139.1. A permanent permit is renewed for two years if its holder fulfils the conditions prescribed by regulation.
However, the Minister may, after consultation with the regional council concerned, change the category, the class, the kind or capacity indicated on the permit if he considers that the public interest warrants it.
Before changing the category, class or kind indicated on the permit, the Minister must give the establishment concerned the opportunity to make representations to him.
The decision of the Minister is final and without appeal; it is not considered a refusal of renewal for the purposes of subdivision 2 of this division.
The holder of a permit that has been modified must take the necessary steps to comply with the new permit within six months of receiving it.
