Explanatory note

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

This Order in Council, which comes into force on 27 June 2011 and expires on 2 May 2012, extends the deadline by which taxis that operate in the area described in Schedule 5 of the Land Transport Rule: Operator Licensing 2007 (the Rule) as Christchurch must comply with requirements relating to in-vehicle security camera systems and emergency alert and response facilities under clauses 4A.1(10), 8.4(8), and 8.5(5) of the Rule.

The compliance deadline is 1 May 2012 instead of 1 August 2011.

The extension is necessary because operators of these taxis, owing to the financial hardship and disruption caused by the Christchurch earthquakes, would be unduly burdened by the 1 August 2011 deadline.

This order is made under the Canterbury Earthquake Recovery Act 2011 and its effect is temporary.

Issued under the authority of the Legislation Act 2012.

Date of notification in Gazette: 26 May 2011.
