Procedure before entry—orders

140 Procedure before entry—orders

(1) This section applies if an authorised person is intending to enter a place under an initial examination order or detention order.
(2) Before entering the place, the authorised person must do or make a reasonable attempt to do the following things—
(a) identify himself or herself to a person present at the place who is an occupier of the place by producing a copy of the authorised person’s identity card or other document evidencing the appointment;
(b) give the person a copy of the order;
(c) tell the person the authorised person is permitted by the order to enter the place;
(d) give the person an opportunity to allow the authorised person immediate entry to the place without using force.
(3) However, the authorised person need not comply with subsection (2) if the authorised person believes on reasonable grounds that immediate entry to the place is required to ensure the effective execution of the order is not frustrated.
