What are the powers of authorised officers?
30. An authorised officer may:

   (a)  require a person involved in the importation of particular food to
        provide enough of the food for inspection to enable a true random
        sample to be obtained for inspection; and

   (b)  require a person involved in the importation of particular food to
        provide details of lot or batch codes and quantities of the food to
        enable a random sample to be obtained for inspection; and

   (c)  take sufficient food to give a representative sample from the food
        being imported, whether that amount exceeds the amount actually
        required to be referred for inspection or not; and

   (d)  take samples free of any charge; and

   (e)  take samples free of any liability for damage necessarily caused in
        the taking of the sample; and

   (f)  ask an analyst to analyse samples of food taken for inspection,
        whether or not requesting that specific tests, or tests for specific
        contaminants or matter, be carried out on the food.
