Explanatory note

This note is not part of the order, but is intended to indicate its general effect.

This order repeals section 13 of the Factories and Commercial Premises Act 1981, which imposes on the employment of women in factories certain restrictions that do not apply to the employment of men in factories. The section is in part a result of New Zealand's having in the past been a party to International Labour Organisation Convention 89 covering Night Work of Women Employed in Industry. Subsection (6) of the section empowers the repeal of the section by Order in Council on the recommendation of the Minister of Labour, and subsection (7) prohibits the Minister from making the necessary recommendation unless he is satisfied that New Zealand is no longer bound by the convention. New Zealand registered a denunciation of the convention on 23 March 1981, and this came into force on 23 March 1982.


Issued under the authority of the Regulations Act 1936.

Date of notification in Gazette: 1 April 1982.
