Order in Council

At Wellington this 4th day of May 2015

Present:
The Right Hon John Key presiding in Council

Pursuant to section 65A of the Dairy Industry Restructuring Act 2001, His Excellency the Governor-General, acting on the advice and with the consent of the Executive Council and on the recommendation of the Minister for Primary Industries, makes the following regulations.

Regulations

1 Title

These regulations are the Dairy Industry (Herd Testing and New Zealand Dairy Core Database) Amendment Regulations 2015.

2 Commencement

These regulations come into force on the 28th day after the date of their notification in the Gazette.

3 Principal regulations

These regulations amend the Dairy Industry (Herd Testing and New Zealand Dairy Core Database) Regulations 2001 (the principal regulations).

4 Regulation 25 amended (Confidentiality)

Replace regulation 25(2) with:

(2)

In subclause (1), any other person includes any person who is both—

(a)

a director, employee, contractor, or associated person of LIC or of the manager; and

(b)

a person involved in any activity of LIC’s or of the manager’s, other than the operation of the database of which the core database forms a part.

Michael Webster,

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 the 28th day after the date of their notification in the Gazette, amend the Dairy Industry (Herd Testing and New Zealand Dairy Core Database) Regulations 2001 (the principal regulations) to correct an error in regulation 25(2) of those regulations. As originally enacted, regulation 25(2) allowed disclosure of confidential information to directors, employees, contractors, and associated persons of the Livestock Improvement Corporation Limited (LIC) who were involved in the operation of the database of which the core database forms a part. When regulation 25(2) was replaced by regulation 21 of the Dairy Industry (Herd Testing and New Zealand Dairy Core Database) Amendment Regulations 2014, the provision was extended to cover the manager of the core database but the exemption for people involved in the operation of the database was inadvertently limited to associated persons of LIC or of the manager of the core database.

Issued under the authority of the Legislation Act 2012.

Date of notification in Gazette: 7 May 2015.

These regulations are administered by the Ministry for Primary Industries.
