This note is not part of the regulations, but is intended to indicate their general effect.
These regulations, which come into force on 1 October 2012, amend the Animal Welfare (Forms) Regulations 1999 by revoking the form prescribed for search warrants. The revocation arises out of the Search and Surveillance Act 2012, which will govern applications for search warrants under the Animal Welfare Act 1999 and also dispenses with the need for search warrants to be in a prescribed form.
Date of notification in Gazette: 30 August 2012.
These regulations are administered by the Ministry for Primary Industries.
