PURSUANT to section 1(5) of the Electricity Industry Reform Act 1998, His Excellency the Governor-General, acting by and with the advice and consent of the Executive Council, makes the following order.

1 Title
  • This order may be cited as the Electricity Industry Reform Act (Commencement of Section 100) Order 1999.

Explanatory note

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

This order brings into force, on 14 May 1999, section 100 of the Electricity Industry Reform Act 1998.

Part 8 of the Act allows the Electricity Corporation of New Zealand Limited (ECNZ) to be restructured into competing State enterprises.

With the split of ECNZ into competing State enterprises from 1 April 1999, it is now appropriate to bring into force section 100 of the Act, which provides for consequential amendments to other legislation.

With the commencement of this order, for the most part references to the Electricity Corporation of New Zealand Limited in other legislation listed in Schedule 2 of the Act are to be replaced by references to a State enterprise within the meaning of the State-Owned Enterprises Act 1986.


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

Date of notification in Gazette: 13 May 1999.
