4. Before any article which appears, or is alleged, to be a copy of a work to which a notice applies is detained, or any further proceedings with a view to the forfeiture thereof under the law relating to the Customs are taken, the person who signed the notice, whether as owner or agent, shall, if required so to do, give to the said Commissioners in writing such further information and evidence, verified if so required by a statutory declaration, as they consider necessary to satisfy them that the article in question is liable to detention and forfeiture.

5. In the case of any detention in consequence of a notice in the Form No. 3 given to the said Commissioners, the person who signed the notice, whether as owner or agent, must, if so required, deposit with the Collector of Customs and Excise or other Chief Officer of Customs and Excise at the port or place of detention a sum of money sufficient in the opinion of that Officer to cover any expense which may be incurred in the examination required by reason of such notice, and if upon the examination of the goods the said Collector or other Chief Officer is satisfied that there is no ground for their detention, they will be delivered.

6. If any goods are placed under detention in consequence of any notice given in pursuance of these Regulations, the said Commissioners may require the person who signed the notice to give an undertaking in writing to reimburse them all expenses and damages incurred in respect of the detention, and of any proceedings consequent upon or arising out of such detention, if such an undertaking has not already been given, and may also require him within four days after the detention to enter into a bond with two approved sureties in such form and for such amount as the said Commissioners may require.

7. Any deposit of money previously made will be returned on the completion of the bond.
