“(3)    

The provision referred to in subsection (2)(a) includes—

 

(a)    

provision authorising a prescribed person to enter any land in accordance

provision for the inspection or testing of any thing by a prescribed person,

the production of documents or other things,

and its retention for that purpose for a reasonable period.”

This amendment removes the requirement that entry on to land must be for the purpose of

 

inspecting a public charging point; and ensures that regulations under Part 2 may make provision,

 

in connection with determining whether there has been a failure to comply with a requirement or

 

prohibition imposed by regulations, about the production, removal and inspection of documents

 

and other items.
