Authorised officer may enter premises by consent or under a search warrant

             (1)  If an authorised officer reasonably suspects that there may be evidential material on any premises, the authorised officer may:

                     (a)  enter the premises; and

                     (b)  exercise the search powers.

             (2)  However, an authorised officer is not authorised to enter the premises unless:

                     (a)  the occupier of the premises has consented to the entry and the authorised officer has shown his or her identity card if required by the occupier; or

                     (b)  the entry is made under a search warrant.

Note:          If entry to the premises is with the occupier's consent, the authorised officer must leave the premises if the consent ceases to have effect (see section 487L).
