Except where expressly provided to the contrary, any regulation made under an Act amended by this Act, and in force immediately before the commencement of the amendment, is taken to have been made under the Act as amended.This clause ensures that, unless expressly provided, any regulation made under an Act amended by the proposed Act, and in force immediately before the commencement of the amendment, will be taken to have been made under the amended Act.
