This note is not part of the regulations, but is intended to indicate their general effect.
These regulations, which come into force on the 28th day after the date of their notification in the Gazette, amend the Amusement Devices Regulations 1978 to provide that a competent person may issue a certificate of examination in respect of a model engineering amusement device, which certifies that the device may be operated without danger to persons operating or using it or in its vicinity. The competent person's certificate applies only to model engineering amusement devices and is an alternative to the present requirement, which requires a certificate of examination for an amusement device to be issued by a chartered professional engineer (which continues to apply in the case of all other kinds of amusement devices).
Date of notification in Gazette: 30 June 2011.
These regulations are administered by the Department of Labour.
