Q 1. Read the below extract of legislation and the scenario further below.  Consider the limitations and conditions of Section 195 – Power to question passengers, etc.

 s.195 Power to question passengers etc.

(1) An officer of Customs may question:

(a) any person who is on board a ship or an aircraft or an installation of the kind referred to in paragraph 187(b), (c), (d) or (e); or

(b) any person who has, or who the officer has reason to believe has, got off a ship or out of an aircraft; or

(c) any person who the officer has reason to believe is about to board a ship or an aircraft; as to whether that person or any child or other person accompanying him or her has on his or her person, in his or her baggage or otherwise with him or her any:

 (d) dutiable goods; or

(e) excisable goods; or

(f) prohibited goods.

 (2) A person shall answer questions put to him or her in pursuance of subsection (1).

 Scenario: “You live locally and are meeting a friend on the wharf who is visiting from a berthed overseas yacht.  Just after she disembarks, your friend hands you a bottle of alcoholic whiskey as a gift – you say thanks, but you only drink lemonade – so you hand it back.  At that very moment, a Border Force Officer pulls up in a car and approaches you, and says he wishes to ask you some questions.  The Officer asks for your name and address and for some ID.  You complain and refuse and tell the Officer that you are an Australian citizen and have never been overseas – so Border Force has no right to stop or question you!”

Q 2. What are the limitations and restrictions of a Customs S.199 search warrant?

 Read this extract below from s.199 of the Customs Act 1901 - The things that are authorised by a search warrant. (NOTE: Some parts of the legislation have not been included for this assessment.)

 Section 199 of the Customs Act 1901:

s.199 - The things that are authorised by a search warrant

 (1)          A search warrant that is in force in relation to premises authorises the executing officer or a person assisting:

(a)          to enter the warrant premises; and

(b)          to search for and to record fingerprints found on or in the premises, and take samples of things (other than human biological fluid or tissue) found on or in the premises for forensic purposes; and

(c)          to search the premises for the kind of evidential material specified in the warrant, and to seize things of that kind found on or in the premises; and

(5)          If the warrant states that it may be executed only during particular hours, the warrant must not be executed outside those hours.

 Name the limitations and/or restrictive conditions of a Customs s.199 Search Warrant. There are at least 6 conditions or limitations that you must state.

 This question aims to assess your ability to read and interpret based on an imagined or real situation. Your answers should be written as a sentence, demonstrating that you understand what a limitation or restriction is.  e.g. ‘The legislation does not permit’ or ‘The legislation can only be used if…’

The aim of the Assessment is to detect ONLY limitations and restrictive conditions - not permissions as such.

A s.199 Search Warrant: - can only be executed during particular hours

 

2.

Q 3. Determine whether an imported device requires a permit to be imported.

 Scenario: “An Australian resident wants to import a Laser Device.  The importer does not have permission granted by the Minister or authorised person and he insists that his Customs Broker has determined that Ministerial permission or a permit is not needed.”  Note:  This scenario is taken from a real-life importation and subsequent court case.

 The Laser specifications are:

Rechargeable Green & Red pencil-beam laser, Green 50 mW and Red 50 mW   Height: 30cm  Width: 10cm

 The relevant legislation:
