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 2016, amends the State Sector (New Zealand Food Safety Authority) Order 2010 (the principal order), which was made at the time of the abolition of the New Zealand Food Safety Authority (NZFSA) 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 the principal order is that, for a transitional period, references to the NZFSA or its chief executive can be read as references to MAF or its chief executive. That transitional period, as extended by the State Sector (Food Safety Authority) Amendment Order 2013, was due to expire on 30 June 2016. This order extends the transitional period to 30 June 2020.
The combined effect of the orders is that, until 30 June 2020, any references to the NZFSA or its chief executive can be read as references to the Ministry for Primary Industries or its chief executive.
Date of notification in Gazette: 9 June 2016.
This order is administered by the State Services Commission.
