An authorised officer may require a person who is subject to record keeping obligations under regulations made for the purposes of section 126AOB to produce to the officer such of those records as the officer requires.
Failing to produce a record when required to do so by an officer may be an offence: see section 243SB . However, a person does not have to produce a record if doing so would tend to incriminate the person: see section 243SC .Disclosing records to Chinese customs official 126AOC(2)
