The licence must be "VALID"

When you consult the Register, you must ensure not only that an enterprise holds a licence, but also that the licence is valid at the time it offers you its services.

If the Register indicates that the status of the licence is "suspended", "revoked" or "expired", the licence is no longer "valid".

This enterprise is therefore prohibited from offering you services.
