Provision relating to Part 6 (compliance certification)

3 Test certificates continue as compliance certificates

(1)

A test certificate (including a conditional test certificate for a hazardous substance location) in force immediately before the commencement date—

continues in force on and after that date for the balance of the period (if any) for which it was issued; and

(b)

must be treated as an equivalent compliance certificate under subpart 2 of Part 6.

(2)

Despite subclause (1)(a), a conditional test certificate for a hazardous substance location continues in force subject to the condition that, if the requirements specified in the certificate are not met by the date specified, the certificate expires at the close of that date.
