This note is not part of the order, but is intended to indicate its general effect.
This order, which comes into force on 30 June 2013, amends the order that was made at the time of the change of name from the Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry (MAF) to the Ministry for Primary Industries by exercise of the Crown's prerogative on 30 April 2012.
The effect of that order is that references to MAF or its chief executive can be read as references to the Ministry for Primary Industries or its chief executive (by applying sections 30H and 30I of the State Sector Act 1988 to things coming into force, entered into, or created during a transitional period after the name change from MAF to the Ministry for Primary Industries). The effect of that order was due to expire on 30 June 2013, but this amendment order extends that transitional period until 30 June 2016.
Two companion orders enable references to the Ministry of Fisheries and the New Zealand Food Safety Authority to be read as references to MAF until 30 June 2016. This order then applies to complete the carry forward of those references so that they can be read as references to the Ministry for Primary Industries or its chief executive until 30 June 2016.
Date of notification in Gazette: 13 June 2013.
This order is administered by the State Services Commission.
