Just wondering about trespass laws in relation to an Industry regulatory body that has no jurisdiction over the person / property on which they are acting.

Does any organisation, other than the police, have the right to turn up unannounced, without a warrant or any paperwork and remove property / livestock to which the owner has title? (and I'm not talking about the RSPCA).

I would like a point of law or ruling. This is for an entire Industry, not a personal case so far. Is this illegal or are there certain circumstances where a Regulatory Body can effectively repossess property belonging to a party not registered with their Authority, based on rules that do not have published guidelines?
Thanks if anyone can help.
Annette.
