If an accident, incident or potential emergency arises during the
performance of activities to which a licence issued under section 11 relates,
the Council may, after the licensee concerned has notified the Council
regarding all steps taken to prevent and limit loss of life, injury and
damage to property, require the licensee to take such further steps as
the Council may deem necessary.
In the event of an accident, incident or
potential emergency contemplated in subsection (1), or whenever the Council has
reason to believe that such an accident, incident or potential emergency may
occur, the Council may notify the Minister accordingly, and the Minister may,
on the advice of the Council, in terms of section 9(1) appoint a board of
inquiry to investigate the matter.
