Explanatory note

This note is not part of the regulations, but is intended to indicate their general effect.

These regulations are made under section 147A of the Legislation Act 2019 and come into force on 28 October 2021.

Various Acts authorise secondary legislation (top-tier SL) made under those Acts to authorise the making of a second tier of secondary legislation (sub-delegated SL). The empowering Acts require the top-tier SL to include a statement to the effect that the sub-delegated SL is secondary legislation.

These regulations amend various top-tier SL to insert those statements and to make consequential amendments, including to align existing provisions for making, commencing, and publishing instruments with the rules that will apply under the Legislation Act 2019.

The amendments are of the same kind as are made by the Secondary Legislation Act 2021 to Acts that contain secondary legislation empowering provisions.

Issued under the authority of the Legislation Act 2012.

Date of notification in Gazette: 16 September 2021.

These regulations are administered by the Parliamentary Counsel Office.
