This note is not part of the regulations, but is intended to indicate their general effect.
These regulations replace the Berryfruit Marketing Licensing Authority (Dissolution) Regulations (No 2) 1990 (SR 1990/323). Those regulations lapsed at the close or the session of Parliament that ended on 18 January 1991. They provided for the dissolution of the Berryfruit Marketing Licensing Authority constituted by the Berryfruit Marketing Licensing Regulations 1983.
Since 1 July 1990 blackcurrants have been the only berryfruit subject to those regulations and to the jurisdiction of the Authority. By virtue of the Horticultural Prescribed Products (Blackcurrants) Order 1990, blackcurrants have become a prescribed product under the New Zealand Horticulture Export Authority Act 1987 and are subject to export licensing under that Act. So there is no further need for the Authority or for the Regulations.
These regulations provide that no person needs to hold an export licence under the Berryfruit Marketing Licensing Regulations 1983. They also provide for various matters in relation to the dissolution of the Authority. After payment of the Authority's debts, its assets will be transferred to Blackcurrants NZ Ltd (which is the recognised product group for blackcurrants under the new regime) and Berryfruit Export NZ Ltd.
On being advised—
the Director-General of Agriculture and Fisheries will dissolve the Authority, by notice in the Gazette, on a day specified in the notice; and on that day the regulations specified in the Schedule to these regulations will be revoked.
