Explanatory note

This Supplementary Order Paper amends the Civil Defence Emergency Management Amendment Bill.

Clause 2 is amended by applying the extended commencement date (18 months after Royal assent) to the change being made to clause 19. The effect is to give Civil Defence Emergency Management (CDEM) Groups sufficient time to include strategic recovery planning in their CDEM plans.

Clause 7 is amended by inserting new subclause (2AB), which amends section 9(3) of the Civil Defence Emergency Management Act 2002 (the principal Act). New section 9(3)(ba) enables the Director of Civil Defence Emergency Management to issue guidelines, codes, or technical standards relating to strategic recovery planning by persons or bodies with responsibilities under the principal Act, including CDEM Groups.

Clause 19 is amended by inserting new subclause (1AB), which amends section 49(2) of the principal Act. New section 49(2)(ca) requires the CDEM plan prepared by a CDEM Group to state and provide for strategic recovery planning.
