substitute

native forest means a local indigenous plant community:

                (a)    the dominant species of which are trees; and

               (b)    containing throughout its growth the complement of native species and habitats normally associated with that forest type or having the potential to develop those characteristics; and

                (c)    including a forest with those characteristics that has been regenerated with human assistance following disturbance; and

               (d)    excluding a plantation of native species or previously logged native forest that has been regenerated with non-endemic native species.

[2]         Subregulation 3 (1), definition of plantation

substitute

plantation means an intensively managed stand of trees of native or exotic species, created by the regular placement of seedlings or seed.

[3]         After subregulation 3 (2)

         (3)   For the definition of solar water heater in subsection 5 (1) of the Act, a device that heats water using solar energy is a solar water heater only:

                (a)    from:

                          (i)    if it is mentioned in Part 2 of Schedule 7 — 1 April 2001; or

                         (ii)    if it is mentioned in Part 3 of Schedule 7 — the date mentioned in the item in which the solar water heater is mentioned; and

               (b)    if it meets the certification requirements:

                         (ii)    for a solar water heater that has a capacity
of more than 700 L — mentioned in section 1.3 of Australian Standard 2712-1993, as in force on 1 January 2001, for its design and manufacture.

         (4)   However, until 1 January 2002, a solar water heater is taken to comply with paragraph (3) (b) if the manufacturer of the heater satisfies the Regulator that:

                (a)    the manufacturer has applied for certification of the heater under Australian Standard 2712-1993, as in force on 1 January 2001; and

               (b)    certification has not been refused; and

                (c)    the manufacturer has calculated the amount of non-renewable electricity that will be displaced by the heater.
