Fair Work (Building Industry—Accreditation Scheme) Amendment Regulation 2014


 Dear Manager

On 12 February 2015 the Chair of the Standing Committee on Regulations and Ordinances, Senator John Williams requested the Minister for Employment, Senator the Hon. Eric Abetz to provide further information on the nature of any consultation that had been carried out in relation to the Fair Work (Building Industry—Accreditation Scheme) Amendment Regulation 2014.

Senator Williams expressed concern that the original accompanying Explanatory Statement to this amendment did not provide sufficient detail on the nature of consultations undertaken.  The Explanatory Statement was tabled on 9 February 2015.

On 25 February 2015 Senator Abetz responded to Senator Williams and advised that the relevant Explanatory Statement would be updated according to the requirements of the Legislative Instruments Act 2003 and re-submitted through the necessary process.

In view of this, we would appreciate if your Office could table the attached Explanatory Statement in substitution for the original Explanatory Statement that was previously tabled.

Yours sincerely
