Marginal note:Application for revocation

  •  (1) An artist in a sector may apply to the Tribunal for an order revoking an association’s certification in respect of that sector

    • (a) on the ground that the association’s by-laws contravene the requirements of subsection 23(2), at any time; and

    • (b) on the ground that that association is no longer the most representative of artists in the sector, or has failed to make reasonable efforts to conclude a scale agreement,

      • (i) in the three months immediately preceding the date that the association’s certification or a renewed certification is to expire, where at least one scale agreement is in force in respect of the sector, or

      • (ii) after one year, or such shorter period as the Tribunal may fix on application, after the date of the certification or a renewed certification of the association, where no scale agreement is in force.

  • Marginal note:Stay of proceedings

    (2) The Tribunal may stay any proceedings for revocation of the certification of an artists’ association under paragraph (1)(a) where the association adopts by-laws that meet the requirements of subsection 23(2) within any period that the Tribunal may specify.

  • Marginal note:Date of revocation

    (3) Revocation of certification is effective from the date of the Tribunal’s determination to revoke it or, where an association fails to adopt by-laws within a period specified by the Tribunal pursuant to subsection (2), on the expiration of that period.

  • Marginal note:Effect of revocation

    (4) Any scale agreement for a sector in respect of which the certification of an artists’ association has been revoked ceases to have effect from the date of revocation or from any later date that the Tribunal may specify.
