What the reprint includes

Endnotes, Compilation table, and Table of provisions that have not come into operation

1.Details about the original regulations are shown in the Compilation table in endnote 1, at the back of the reprint. The table also shows any previous reprint.

2.A table of provisions that have not come into operation, to be found in endnote 1a if it is needed, lists any provisions that would amend the text if they were to come into operation. The table refers to another endnote setting out the text of the amendments in full.

Notes amongst text (italicised and within square brackets)

Editorial notes show if something has been omitted under the Reprints Act 1984 s. 7(4) (because, although still technically part of the text, it no longer has any effect).

The text of anything omitted can be found in an earlier reprint (if there is one) or the regulations as published.

Reprint numbering and date

1.The reprint number (in the footer of each page of the document) shows how many times the regulations have been reprinted. For example, numbering a reprint as “Reprint 3” would mean that the reprint was the 3rd reprint since the regulations were published. Reprint numbering was implemented as from 1 January 2003.

2.The information in the reprint is current on the date shown as the date as at which the regulations are reprinted. That date is not the date when the reprint was published by the State Law Publisher and it is probably not the date when the most recent amendment had effect.
