(cf clause 81G of EP&A Regulation 1994)(1) This clause applies to:(a) an accreditation body that ceases to exist or whose authorisation as an accreditation body is withdrawn, and(b) an accreditation body that ceases to be authorised in respect of a class of matters because of a variation in the terms of its authorisation,(referred to in either case as a defunct accreditation body) but, in relation to an accreditation body that ceases to be authorised in respect of a class of matters, applies only in relation to the class of matters in respect of which the accreditation body has ceased to be authorised.(2) Subject to action taken under the Act or this Regulation, as applied by this clause, any accreditation granted by a defunct accreditation body continues to have effect according to its terms.(3) If an accreditation body becomes defunct:(a) the functions of the defunct accreditation body (including the commencement and maintenance of any proceedings before the Administrative Decisions Tribunal under Division 3 of Part 4B of the Act) are to be exercised by the Minister, or by such other person as the Minister may appoint to exercise those functions, and(b) the Act and this Regulation apply to the Minister, or to the person so appointed, in the same way as they previously applied to the accreditation body before it became defunct.(4) Without limiting subclause (3) (a), another accreditation body may be appointed to exercise the functions of a defunct accreditation body.(5) Neither the Minister, nor any person appointed to exercise the functions of a defunct accreditation body, is liable for any act or omission done or omitted to be done in good faith in the exercise of those functions.
