         (2)   The test must not be conducted in the presence or view of a person whose presence is not necessary for the purposes of the test and must not involve:

         (3)   If practicable, the test must be conducted by a person of the same sex as the AFP employee or special member directed to undergo the test.

13J         Certificates

                A certificate issued under subregulation 13F (3) or regulation 13M or 13T is evidence of the matters stated in the certificate.

13K         Record keeping

         (1)   Subregulation (1A) applies to all records that indicate the presence of alcohol or prohibited drugs when tested.

      (1A)   All records, including body samples, relevant to a breath test, blood test or prohibited drug test conducted for section 40M or 40N of the Act must:

                (a)                for a body sample — be kept in a secure location and destroyed no later than 2 years from the day that the test was conducted; or

               (b)    for any other record — be kept in a secure location and destroyed as soon as practicable after the AFP employee or special member to whom the record relates ceases, for any reason, to be an AFP employee or special member.

         (2)   However, information obtained from the analysis of a sample may be retained, if:

                (a)    it is used for compiling a statistical database; and

analyst means a person at an accredited pathology laboratory who performs the quantification of a body sample taken by an authorised person.

13R         Taking of body samples

         (1)   An authorised person taking a body sample for the purposes of a blood test or prohibited drug test must:

                (a)    place approximately equal quantities of the sample into 2 containers; and

               (b)    label each container for future identification; and

                (c)    ensure that each container is sealed.

         (2)   The authorised person must:

                (a)    if satisfied that the AFP employee or special member from whom the sample was taken is incapable of understanding the procedures that have been applied to him or her — arrange for both sealed containers to be sent to an accredited pathology laboratory; or

               (b)    in any other case — give 1 sealed container to the AFP employee or special member and arrange for the other sealed container to be sent to an accredited pathology laboratory.

13S         Analysis of body samples

         (1)   An analyst at an accredited pathology laboratory must conduct an analysis of a portion of the body sample to determine:

                (a)    the concentration of alcohol in the blood; or

               (b)    whether the body sample contains a prohibited drug.

         (2)   If the first analysis of a portion of the sample indicates the presence of alcohol or a prohibited drug in the sample, an analysis of another portion of the sample must be conducted.

         (3)   If 2 containers were submitted to the accredited pathology laboratory under paragraph 13R (2) (a), the sample for the second analysis must be taken from the same container from which the earlier sample was taken.

13T         Certificates

         (1)   As soon as practicable after an analysis is conducted, the analyst who conducted the analysis of the body sample for a blood test or prohibited drug test must give a certificate to:

                (a)    the AFP employee or special member who provided the sample; and

               (b)    the authorised person who directed that the AFP employee or special member undergo the test.

         (2)   The certificate must state the following information:

                (a)    the unanalysed sample must be made available for independent testing; and

               (b)    all records of the original test must be made available for re‑examination.
