 When we want to stop the execution of disposal as disposal shall remain in effect until it is canceled by decision and is treated even if we do query, it is necessary for suspension of execution to make a statement. The execution is stopped at time admitted that we need emergency to avoid the serious damage to occur by the execution of disposal.

In this case as effect of building certification disposal continues, construction continues and is performed. It is necessary for some cases to suffer serious damage to do suspension of execution statement by construction continuing.)
