This note is not part of the regulations, but is intended to indicate their general effect.
These regulations, which come into force on the day after the date of their notification in the Gazette, allow—
•elections for new members of Kiwifruit New Zealand to be held before 1 April 2000; and
•elected and appointed members of Kiwifruit New Zealand to take office before 1 November 2000, if initial members of Kiwifruit New Zealand resign before that date.
At present the Kiwifruit Export Regulations 1999 provide that the elections of new members must be held after 1 April 2000 and before 1 November 2000. Until then, the existing members of the old New Zealand Kiwifruit Marketing Board (established by the Kiwifruit Marketing Regulations 1977) continue to hold office as initial members of Kiwifruit New Zealand. The regulations do not currently provide for a situation where some of those initial members may wish to resign.
This amendment also corrects 4 incorrect references in the Schedule of the regulations. The references are to this Act when they should be references to these regulations.
