Order

1 Title
  • This order is the Ombudsmen Act (Schedule 1—Canterbury Earthquake Recovery Authority) Order 2014.

2 Commencement
  • This order comes into force on 1 February 2015.

3 Part 1 of Schedule 1 of Ombudsmen Act 1975 amended

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 1 February 2015, removes the Canterbury Earthquake Recovery Authority (CERA) from Part 1 of Schedule 1 of the Ombudsmen Act 1975 (which lists the government departments to which that Act applies). CERA is being disestablished as a government department and established instead as a departmental agency hosted by the Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet. The Ombudsmen Act 1975 and the Official Information Act 1982 will apply to CERA as a departmental agency, because they apply to its host department, the Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet.


Issued under the authority of the Legislation Act 2012.

Date of notification in Gazette: 11 December 2014.

This order is administered by the Ministry of Justice.
