Explanatory note

This note is not part of the notice, but is intended to indicate its general effect.

This notice comes into force on the day that is 3 months after the date of its notification in the Gazette.

Clause 3 defines the key terms phonographic document, publish, and copy. A phonographic document is a public document in which sound is stored and can be reproduced. In order to be a phonographic document, the sound must be stored by means of a mechanical process or by any other means apart from an electronic recording device, a computer, or any other electronic medium. The term includes vinyl records and records made of rubber, shellac, celluloid-coated cardboard, or any other material. It also includes any covering in which the public document is stored and any written material that accompanies the public document. A phonographic document is published if copies are made available to the public, whether or not there is any restriction on the acquisition or use of the document. A copy of the phonographic document must itself be a phonographic document and must be in the same format as the original.

Clause 4 provides that this notice applies to all classes of phonographic documents published on or after the date on which the notice comes into force, and to all publishers of those documents.

Clause 5 requires publishers of phonographic documents to provide 1 or more copies of each document to the National Librarian at their own expense and within 20 working days after the date on which the document is first published. Two copies of the document must be provided unless fewer than 100 copies of the document are published or the price of 1 copy exceeds $1,000, in which case only 1 copy of the document need be provided.

Clause 6 sets out the address to which the required copies of phonographic documents must be delivered.

Issued under the authority of the Legislation Act 2012.

Date of notification in Gazette: 3 August 2017.
