Interpretation Amendment Act 2006: effect of amendments
NSW legislation website
On 8 June 2006 as a result of the assent of the Interpretation Amendment Act 2006, the NSW legislation website (www.legislation.nsw.gov.au) was established under Part 6A of the Interpretation Act 1987 (new section 45C) as the official NSW government site for the online publication of legislation.
Section 45C (5) of the Interpretation Act 1987 will enable the Parliamentary Counsel to certify the form of that legislation that is correct. Until that formal certification, an electronic copy of an item of legislation on that website should continue to be treated as being a reference document only.
The technological framework underpinning formal certification is being developed. In addition, provisions regarding the online gazettal of statutory instruments etc are yet to commence.
Further information regarding developments in this area will be posted on the What's New page and the Weekly Bulletin from time to time.
