Persons authorised to intercept communications for Organisation

             (1)  The Director-General of Security, or an ASIO employee or ASIO affiliate appointed by the Director-General of Security, in writing, to be an authorizing officer for the purposes of this subsection, may, by writing under his or her hand, approve any persons, or class of persons, as persons authorized to exercise, on behalf of the Organisation, the authority conferred by Part 2-2 warrants.

             (2)  To avoid doubt, and without limiting subsection (1), if approval is given to a person or class of persons holding, occupying or performing the duties of an office or position, then the approval extends to such an office or position that comes into existence after the approval is given.

             (3)  Subsection (2) does not, by implication, affect the interpretation of any other provision of this Act.

             (4)  The Director-General of Security must, as soon as practicable after the authority conferred by a Part 2-2 warrant is exercised on behalf of the Organisation, cause one or more written records to be made that identify each person who exercised that authority.
