    (2) These regulations shall come into force on the 1st day of August 1980.

2 Interpretation
  • In these regulations, unless the context otherwise requires,—

    The Act means the Animal Remedies Act 1967

    Equipment includes all apparatus, containers, instruments, machinery, piping, receptacles, thermometers, utensils, and other articles used in the preparation, testing, handling, manufacture, container filling or storage of biochemical substances

    Licence means a principal technician's licence issued under regulation 5 of these regulations or, as the case may require, a licence issued under regulation 13 of these regulations in respect of any premises used for the manufacture of any biochemical substance

    Principal technician, in relation to the manufacture of a biochemical substance, means the person who has the immediate direction, supervision, and control of the actual process of manufacturing that substance in premises licensed under these regulations; and includes the licensee of the substance if he himself exercises immediate direction, supervision, and control over manufacture

    Proprietor, in relation to a biochemical substance manufactured in any premises in New Zealand, means the holder of the licence issued under these regulations in respect of those premises, and, in relation to a biochemical substance not manufactured in New Zealand, means the importer of the substance.
