31AA Recognition of interstate orders
(1) The Minister may, by order in writing, recognise any interstate prohibition order made against a person, for the purposes of its enforcement in New South Wales.(2) An interstate prohibition order is an order made by a court under the law of another State or a Territory, or a part of such an order, that has the effect of prohibiting a person from purchasing or acquiring, or taking possession or custody of, any animal.(3) If an interstate prohibition order is recognised by the Minister under this section, the NSW offence provision applies in respect of the interstate prohibition order as if a reference in that provision to an order included a reference to an interstate prohibition order recognised under this section (as in force from time to time).(4) The NSW offence provision applies only to those provisions of the recognised interstate prohibition order that can be included in an order of a kind made under section 31 (1).(5) A person who is served with notice that the Minister has recognised an interstate prohibition order made against the person is taken, for the purposes of the NSW offence provision, to have been served with the order as made under section 31 (1).(6) In this section, the NSW offence provision means section 31 (3).
