Explanatory note

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 abolition of the New Zealand Food Safety Authority and the transfer of its functions to the Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry (MAF) by exercise of the Crown's prerogative on 1 July 2010.

The effect of that order is that references to the New Zealand Food Safety Authority or its chief executive can be read as references to MAF 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 transfer of the Authority's functions to MAF). 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.

A companion order, the State Sector (Ministry for Primary Industries) Amendment Order 2013, extends the transitional period during which sections 30H and 30I of the Act apply to things coming into force, entered into, or created after the name of MAF was changed to the Ministry for Primary Industries on 30 April 2012.

The combined effect of these 2 orders is that, until 30 June 2016, any references to the New Zealand Food Safety Authority or its chief executive can be read as references to the Ministry for Primary Industries or its chief executive.


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

Date of notification in Gazette: 13 June 2013.
