1298P  Validation of approval of auditing competency standard

             (1)  This section applies, for the purposes of the laws of the Commonwealth (including this Act), in relation to the approval dated 24 November 2004 under section 1280A of an auditing competency standard (whether or not the approval is in force when this section commences).

             (2)  The Legislation Act 2003 has effect, and is taken always to have had effect, as if:

                     (a)  the approval had been lodged for registration immediately after the approval was given; and

                     (b)  the approval had been registered immediately after it was lodged for registration; and

                     (c)  any other requirement imposed by that Act in relation to the approval had been met.

             (3)  However, this section does not affect rights or liabilities arising between parties to proceedings heard and finally determined by a court on or before the commencement of this section, to the extent that those rights or liabilities arose from, or were affected by, the approval.

             (2)  If the Commonwealth and the person do not agree on the amount of the compensation, the person may institute proceedings in the Federal Court for the recovery from the Commonwealth of such reasonable amount of compensation as the court determines.
