Explanatory note

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

This order amends Part 1 of Schedule 2 of the Privacy Act 1993 by inserting 14 items. The provisions listed in Part 1 of Schedule 2 of the Privacy Act 1993 are those under which various registers are maintained. By listing them in Schedule 2 they become public registers for the purpose of the Privacy Act 1993.

Twelve of the items added are provisions establishing registers maintained under various health occupational licensing statutes. As a result of adding these items, the occupational registers maintained under the provisions become public registers. The provisions are:

  • 1) The Chiropractors Act 1982, section 12

  • 2) The Dental Act 1988, section 27

  • 3) The Dietitians Act 1950, section 9

  • 4) The Medical Auxiliaries Act 1966, section 19

  • 5) The Medical Practitioners Act 1995, section 37

  • 6) The Nurses Act 1977, section 16

  • 7) The Occupational Therapy Act 1949, section 9

  • 8) The Optometrists and Dispensing Opticians Act 1976, section 14

  • 9) The Pharmacy Act 1970, section 17

  • 10) The Physiotherapy Act 1949, section 9

  • 11) The Plumbers, Gasfitters, and Drainlayers Act 1976, section 20

  • 12) The Psychologists Act 1981, section 12

The other two items added to the schedule are regulation 5 of the Land Transfer Regulations 1966 and section 51 of the Securities Act 1978.

Regulation 5 of the Land Transfer Regulations 1966 relates to the index and journals to the land registers and the application book. The land registers themselves, which are maintained under sections 33 and 50 of the Land Transfer Act 1952, are already public registers. The order makes clear that the index and journals are also maintained pursuant to public register provisions.

Section 51 of the Securities Act 1978 requires issuers to keep registers of securities. Including section 51 in Schedule 2 of the Privacy Act 1993 will mean that issuers' registers become public registers, bringing them into line with related statutory registers such as those maintained under the Companies Act 1993.

This order comes into force on 19 November 1998.


Issued under the authority of the Acts and Regulations Publication Act 1989.

Date of notification in Gazette: 22 October 1998.

This order is administered by the Ministry of Justice.
