CAT ACT 2011 - SECT 62

62 .         Giving an infringement notice

        (1)         An authorised person who has reason to believe that a person has committed a prescribed offence against this Act or a regulation or local law made under this Act may, within 28 days after the alleged offence is believed to have been committed, give an infringement notice to the alleged offender.

        (2)         A local government can only prescribe an offence for the purposes of subsection (1) if a prosecution for the offence could be commenced by the local government or any of its employees and the local government is satisfied that —

            (a)         commission of the offence would be a relatively minor matter; and

            (b)         only straightforward issues of law and fact would be involved in determining whether the offence was committed, and the facts in issue would be readily ascertainable.

        (3)         A person who is not an employee of a local government cannot be appointed to be an authorised person for the purposes of this section.

        [Section 62 amended: No. 16 of 2019 s. 93.]
