SLI 2010 No. 152 Regulations as made
These Regulations amend the Classification (Publications, Films and Computer Games) Regulations 2005 to alter the definition of ‘eligible document’ in Regulation 19 to mean both an application for classification and a section 87 document (i.e. create the legal fiction that these two documents are one) to increase the number of free applications for classification and section 87 certificates that State and Territory law enforcement agencies may make. These Regulations also provide that States and Territories will receive 100 free eligible documents per financial rather than calendar year.
