ACMA may require independent audit of costs

             (1)  In undertaking an arbitration under section 209, the ACMA may, by notice in writing, require a carrier to arrange for an audit of the costs claimed to have been incurred by the carrier in relation to the provision to an interception agency of a delivery capability.

             (2)  Subject to subsection (3), the audit is to be carried out by an auditor selected by the carrier and approved by the ACMA.

             (3)  If the auditor selected by a carrier is not approved by the ACMA, the ACMA may require that the audit be carried out by an auditor selected by the ACMA or by the ACMA itself.

             (4)  Unless the audit is carried out by the ACMA itself, the ACMA may, in the notice requiring the audit, specify the period within which the auditor is to report to the ACMA.

             (5)  If a carrier receives a notice under this section, the carrier:

                     (a)  must co-operate in full with the person or body carrying out the audit; and

                     (b)  must bear the costs of the audit.

             (6)  A notice given under this section is not a legislative instrument.
