FAQ Answer

Why would a CCA be suspended or revoked and who does this?

Suspension or revocation of the CCA can only be applied by the competent authority of the Member State that issued the CCA and not by any other organisation:

Possible reasons for limitation, suspension, or revocation of a CCA are as follows:

• When a safety issue has been identified,
• Due to obtaining or maintaining validity of the CCA due to falsification of submitted documentary evidence,
• Due to exercising the privileges of the CCA when adversely affected by alcohol or drugs -Where there is evidence of malpractice or fraudulent use of the CCA.
• Where for a legitimate reason it is identified that an existing CCA must be revoked before another one can be issued. (e.g. following liaison between the competent Authorities of two Member States)
