Telecommunications (Interception Capability and Security) Act 2013

74 Power of designated officer to delegate


The Registrar or any other designated officer may delegate to any person, either generally or particularly, any of the Registrar’s or other designated officer’s functions, duties, and powers except the power of delegation.


A delegation—


must be in writing; and


may be made subject to any restrictions and conditions the Registrar or designated officer thinks fit; and


is revocable at any time, in writing; and


does not prevent the performance or exercise of a function, duty, or power by the Registrar or designated officer.


A person to whom any functions, duties, or powers are delegated may perform and exercise them in the same manner and with the same effect as if they had been conferred directly by this Act and not by delegation.


A person who appears to act under a delegation is presumed to be acting in accordance with its terms in the absence of evidence to the contrary.
