IOM CONSULTATION AND INSPECTION OF COMPUTERS

Division 6 (clause 93) has a provision facilitating statutory powers to inspect a document or information kept on a computer. A person with access to the computer and who is required under the power to produce, or help to produce, such a document or information has a duty to reproduce it from the computer in a form that can be understood and to allow the computer’s operation to be checked.

The above is a proposal in a current government consultation issued by the Attorney General’s office.

  1. The UK’s Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act 2000 made it an offence to withhold passwords and access keys to hard drives.

    This clause seems to achieve the same thing.
