This note is not part of the order, but is intended to indicate its general effect.
This order, which comes into force on 1 January 2002, amends Excise item numbers and Tariff item numbers relating to motor spirit and automotive diesel. The amendments are consequential on renumbering of Tariff items in the Tariff—
•as part of New Zealand's obligations as a signatory to the International Convention on the Harmonised Commodity Description and Coding System; and
•implemented by the Tariff (Harmonised System) Amendment Order 2001 (which also comes into force on 1 January 2002).
As is required by section 78(3) of the Customs and Excise Act 1996, none of the amendments alters duties, or exemptions from duty, under that Act, applicable to goods classified under the items amended.
