Expiry Program Information
Under Part 3A of the Subordinate Legislation Act 1978 certain regulations expire on 1 September of the year following the year in which the 10th anniversary of the day on which the regulations were made falls. The Act allows the expiry to be postponed for a period or periods not exceeding 2 years at a time and not exceeding 4 years in aggregate.
In this context a reference to regulations includes a reference to rules and by-laws made under an Act.
The following regulations are outside the expiry program:
- regulations that are not required to be laid before Parliament
- by-laws made under the Local Government Act 1999
- regulations amending an Act
- regulations under the National Energy Retail Law (South Australia)
- a regulation under the Natural Resources Management Act 2004 declaring a watercourse, lake or well to be a prescribed watercourse, lake or well or declaring that part of the State is a surface water prescribed area
- by-laws made under section 171 of the Natural Resources Management Act 2004
- regulations under section 264 of the Rail Safety National Law
- regulations under the Southern State Superannuation Act 2009
- regulations under Schedule 1A clause 1(1) of the Superannuation Act 1988
- regulations made by a person, body or authority other than the Governor.
The program is designed to ensure that regulations are reviewed regularly and remade in a form that is appropriate to their current context.
The information on the home page of regulations provides the date of expiry and a note of previous postponements of expiry or a statement that the regulations are exempt from the expiry program.
A list of regulations due to next expire under the program can be accessed from the information box on the left-hand side of the screen.
