This note is not part of the regulations, but is intended to indicate their general effect.
These regulations, which come into force on 1 July 2011, are made under the Contraception, Sterilisation, and Abortion Act 1977. They revoke regulation 6 of the Abortion Regulations 1978 and substitute new regulations 6 and 7.
New regulation 6 adjusts the application fees for a licence and a licence renewal to reflect the movement in the New Zealand Consumers Price Index (All Groups) since 1 July 2004.
New regulation 7 provides that the new fees are inclusive of goods and services tax (GST).
The fees replaced are also GST inclusive, but differed as actually charged from their originally prescribed amounts, which were amended indirectly on the first imposition on 1 October 1986, and on the 1 July 1989 and 1 October 2010 increases in the rate, of GST.
Date of notification in Gazette: 26 May 2011.
