Retailers must comply with this code of conduct when checking the bags of customers who enter their retail store.
The code sets out clearly what a retailer can and cannot do when conducting a bag search.
Retailers must display signs at the store entry which indicates that:
- agreeing to a bag check is a condition of entry to the store
- checks can be performed on bags, parcels, cartons and containers.
Please consult the Contact Officer for more information.
