26 Application for order
(1) An authorised applicant (but no other person) may apply to a Magistrate
for an order under section 24 authorising him or her to arrange the carrying
out of a forensic procedure on a suspect.
(2) An application for an order
(a) be made in writing, and
(b) be supported by evidence on oath, or by
affidavit, in relation to the matters as to which the Magistrate must be
satisfied, as referred to in section 24 (1), and
(c) specify the type of
forensic procedure sought to be carried out.

application for an order authorising the carrying out of a forensic procedure
