Customs Act 1901
Subject to subsection (2), a medical practitioner may, in carrying out an internal medical search of a detainee under section 219Z, use any medical procedure or apparatus that the medical practitioner considers to be reasonably safe in the circumstances.
The medical practitioner must not use any medical procedure involving surgical incision unless he or she considers it necessary to do so because the detainee's life is at risk.
(a) suspects on reasonable grounds during the internal medical search that the detainee is internally concealing a substance or thing; and
(b) lacks sufficient expertise to recover it;
he or she must, as soon as practicable, arrange for another medical practitioner having that expertise to do so.
