Grounds for Refusal
63. (1) Subject to subsection (2), the Minister shall refuse to register an applicant or renew an applicant’s registration if
(a) the applicant is not eligible under section 58;
(b) the Minister has reasonable grounds to believe that any information or document included in the application is false or misleading;
(c) additional information required under section 61 has not been provided or is insufficient to process the application;
(d) the registration would permit an activity that would not be in compliance with an international obligation of Canada;
(e) information received from a competent authority, the United Nations or a peace officer raises a reasonable belief that the applicant has been or will be involved in the diversion of a controlled substance or precursor to an illicit market or use;
(f) the applicant is not, or within the previous 10 years has not been, in compliance with
(i) a provision of the Act or a regulation made or continued under the Act, or
(ii) a term or condition of a licence, registration certificate or permit issued to it under any regulation made or continued under the Act;
(g) the senior person in charge mentioned in the application has been convicted, as an adult, within the previous 10 years of
(i) a designated drug offence,
(ii) a designated criminal offence, or
(iii) an offence committed outside of Canada that, if committed in Canada, would have constituted an offence referred to in subparagraph (i) or (ii); or
(h) the registration would likely create a risk to public health, safety or security, including the risk of a Class B precursor being diverted to an illicit market or use.
(2) The Minister is not required to refuse to register an applicant or renew an applicant’s registration under paragraph (1)(b) or (f) if the applicant
(a) does not have a history of non-compliance with the Act and any regulation made or continued under the Act; and
