authorised officer appointed under this Act must be issued with an identity
card in a form approved by the Chief Public Health Officer—
containing the person's name and a photograph of the person; and
stating that the person is an authorised officer for the purposes of this Act;
setting out the name or office of the issuing authority.
(2) The identity card
must be issued as soon as is reasonably practicable after the appointment is
made (but an authorised officer is not prevented from exercising powers under
this Act just because an identity card is yet to be issued).
authorised officer must, at the request of a person in relation to whom the
officer intends to exercise any powers under this Act, produce for the
inspection of the person his or her identity card (unless the identity card is
yet to be issued).
authorised officer appointed under this Act must, on ceasing to be an
authorised officer for any reason, surrender his or her identity card to the
Chief Public Health Officer (if a State authorised officer) or the council
that made the appointment (if a local authorised officer).
Maximum penalty: $250.
