66. Proof of the issue and content of any certificate, licence, permit or other authorization required by an Act for the carrying on of an activity may be made by producing, before the judge, either the authorization or an attestation signed by the person having the authority to issue such authorization.
Proof that the authorization was not granted or was suspended or that conditions or restrictions were attached to the authorization may be established by means of an attestation signed by the person having the authority to issue such authorization.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, where it is alleged that the defendant failed to comply with the obligation imposed by an Act to hold such authorization, he must establish the fact that he holds the authorization.
