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 3 May 2018, revokes the Fire and Emergency New Zealand Act Commencement Order 2017 (the principal order).

The principal order was made with the intention of bringing the levy-related provisions in sections 80 to 140 of the Fire and Emergency New Zealand Act 2017 (the Act) into force on 1 January 2019. However, since the making of the principal order, it has become clear that there would not be sufficient time to implement all necessary changes in levy arrangements before 1 January 2019.

The effect of this order is that the principal order is revoked and, in accordance with section 2(6) of the Act, sections 80 to 140 of the Act will come into force on 1 July 2019. Accordingly, the current transitional levy arrangements under the Fire and Emergency New Zealand (Levy Rates and Information Requirements in Transitional Period) Regulations 2017 will continue to be in force until the close of 30 June 2019.

This order is revoked on 31 May 2018.

Issued under the authority of the Legislation Act 2012.

Date of notification in Gazette: 5 April 2018.

This order is administered by the Department of Internal Affairs.
