Use, in court proceedings, of information from ASIC's national database

             (1)  In this section:

"data processor" means a mechanical, electronic or other device for processing data.

             (2)  In a proceeding in a court, a writing that purports to have been prepared by ASIC is admissible as prima facie evidence of the matters stated in so much of the writing as sets out what purports to be information obtained by ASIC, by using a data processor, from the national database. In other words, the writing is proof of such a matter in the absence of evidence to the contrary.

             (3)  A writing need not bear a certificate or signature in order to be taken to purport to have been prepared by ASIC.

             (4)  Nothing in this section limits, or is limited by, section 1274 or 1274A.
