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 1 July 2011, are made under the Prostitution Reform Act 2003 (the Act). They amend operator certificate regulations made under the Act. Fees for applications for the issue of an operator certificate, or for the issue of a replacement certificate, are adjusted to reflect the movement in the New Zealand Consumers Price Index (All Groups) since 1 July 2004.

The fees replaced are inclusive of goods and services tax (GST), but were not amended directly to reflect the 1 October 2010 GST increase, and so differed from those actually charged. The new fees are also GST inclusive.

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

Date of notification in Gazette: 26 May 2011.

These regulations are administered by the Ministry of Justice.
