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.
