Explanatory note

This note is not part of the regulations, but is intended to indicate their general effect.

These regulations, which come into force on 1 July 2014, amend the Financial Service Providers (Fees and Levy) Regulations 2010 to remove references to the annual dispute resolution scheme levy. The principal regulations will now relate only to fees payable under the Financial Service Providers (Registration and Dispute Resolution) Act 2008 (the FSP Act). Accordingly, the principal regulations have been renamed the Financial Service Providers (Fees) Regulations 2010.

These regulations are made as a consequence of the Financial Service Providers (Registration and Dispute Resolution) Amendment Act 2014. That Act amended the FSP Act to repeal the provisions relating to the reserve scheme and also the provisions relating to the levy (which was used to meet part of the costs of the reserve scheme). Those repeals also come into force on 1 July 2014 (see the Financial Service Providers (Registration and Dispute Resolution) Amendment Act 2014 Commencement Order 2014).


Issued under the authority of the Legislation Act 2012.

Date of notification in Gazette: 26 June 2014.

These regulations are administered by the Ministry of Business, Innovation, and Employment.
