Exceptions to the prescribed minimum viewing time of the auctioned item in the auctioneer industry Admission
The auctioneer must give the auctioneer the opportunity to inspect the auctioned goods for a period of at least 2 hours. The competent authority may grant exceptions if the tenderers are otherwise given sufficient opportunity to assess the auctioned goods.
The alternative opportunity for the auction item to be assessed by the bidders may be provided by providing a catalogue documenting the auctioned item.
