This note is not part of the order, but is intended to indicate its general effect.
This order brings the Legislation Act 2012 (the Act) completely into force on 1 February 2014. A previous commencement order, the Legislation Act Commencement Order 2013, brought into force on 5 August 2013 almost all of the provisions of the Act that had been dormant before that date. However, the consequential amendments to the Biosecurity Act 1993 set out in the Schedule of the Act were excluded from the previous commencement order because they amended provisions that had been superseded by later legislation. Those consequential amendments can now be brought into force because they have been brought up to date by the recently enacted Legislation Amendment Act 2013.
Date of notification in Gazette: 12 December 2013.
This order is administered by the Parliamentary Counsel Office.
