Inspector-General may review administration of provisions

             (1)  The Inspector-General may review the performance of functions, or exercise of powers, by biosecurity officials under one or more provisions of this Act.

Note:          A review under this section is different from a review of a reviewable decision under Part 1 of Chapter 11. Although this section lets the Inspector-General review an exercise of power under a provision of this Act that may involve a reviewable decision, the Inspector-General cannot affirm, vary or set aside the decision.

             (2)  Subsection (1) does not permit the Inspector-General to review only a single performance of a function, or a single exercise of a power, by a single biosecurity official.

Note:          A review under this section must be more general.

Report on review

             (3)  The Inspector-General must publish a report on each review he or she conducts under this section.

Regulations may deal with reviews and reports

             (4)  The regulations may make provision for or in relation to:

                     (a)  the process to be followed in conducting a review under this section; and

                     (b)  the content of reports of reviews conducted under this section.
