17:10B-3. Investigations, examinations by commissioner
3. a. The commissioner may make such investigations and examinations upon reasonable suspicion as he deems necessary to determine whether a person has violated or is about to violate any provision of this act or any order, rule or regulation issued hereunder. For such purposes, he may investigate or examine the books, accounts, records, papers and other documents or matters of the person. He shall have the power to compel by subpena the attendance of witnesses and the production of all relevant books, accounts, records, papers and other documents or matters relative to an examination or investigation and to administer oaths and affirmations to any person. The costs of each examination shall be borne by the person at the department's regular per diem rate for examinations of licensees. Examinations conducted under the provisions of this act shall be confidential except as required in the administration, enforcement and prosecution of violations under this act, actions brought by the Attorney General, or pursuant to a court order.
b. If any person refuses to obey a subpena, or to give testimony or to produce evidence, the commissioner may apply ex parte to any court having jurisdiction over that person for an order compelling the appearance of the witness before the commissioner to give testimony or to produce evidence as required thereby, or both.
