Current version for 13 August 2018 to date (accessed 22 September 2019 at 06:49)
87A   Persons who may make a complaint
(1)  A complaint alleging that a named person has, or named persons have, contravened a provision of this Act or the regulations (other than a provision for which a specific penalty is imposed) may be made by any of the following:
(a)  one or more persons:
(i)  on his, her or their own behalf, or
(ii)  on his, her or their own behalf as well as on behalf of another person or persons,
(b)  a parent or guardian of a person who lacks the legal capacity to lodge a complaint (for example, because of age or disability),
(c)  a representative body on behalf of a named person or persons, subject to section 87C,
(d)  an agent of any of the persons referred to in paragraph (a), (b) or (c).
(2)  Nothing in this Division prevents a person from making a complaint (not being a representative complaint) even though the conduct in respect of which the complaint is made is also conduct in respect of which a representative complaint has been made.
(3)  In this section, guardian has the same meaning as it has in the Guardianship Act 1987.
