Section 25: Inspection of records required to be kept by holder of licence

117.Subsection (1) enables an inspector to require that the holder of a licence, granted under regulations made under section 13, produce any records that he is required to keep by a condition of a licence.

118.Subsection (2) deals with records stored electronically, for example on a computer. In this case, the inspector may require records to be printed or to be saved onto a disc or similar device. This is to enable them to be taken away and considered without removing the computer on which they are stored.
