Power to require information or documents

    (1)     For the purpose of monitoring compliance with this Act and the regulations, an authorised officer may by written notice require a person, within a reasonable period specified in the notice—

        (a)     to give the authorised officer any information that the authorised officer requires; or

        (b)     to produce to the authorised officer a document in the custody or control of the person.

    (2)     A notice under subsection (1) must—

        (a)     warn the person that a refusal or failure to comply with the notice, without reasonable excuse, is an offence; and

        (b)     if directed to an individual, inform the person that the person may refuse or fail to produce documents (other than a record or other document that the person is required to keep under this Act) or provide information if producing the document or providing the information would tend to incriminate the person.


See section 67 for offences related to giving information or producing documents.

    (3)     An authorised officer may inspect, and make copies of or take extracts from, a document produced to the authorised officer under subsection (1).
