Explanatory note

This note is not part of the regulations, but is intended to indicate their general effect.

These regulations, which come into force on 15 December 2003, amend the Dog Control (Prescribed Forms) Regulations 1996 (the Regulations). The amendments are required in order for the Regulations to take account of the enactment of the Dog Control Amendment Act 2003 which amends the Dog Control Act 1996 (for example, by increasing the rate of penalties for offences and by requiring a registered dog owner to exercise greater control of a dog in public and private areas).

The amendments update the Schedule to the Regulations by revoking and replacing all of the forms in the Schedule. The only forms that are not substantively amended are forms 5 and 7.


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

Date of notification in Gazette: 4 December 2003.
