Ordinance No. 2, 2015 Ordinances/Norfolk Island as made
This Ordinance ensures that existing Norfolk Island laws (continued in force under s 16 and new 16A of the Norfolk Island Act 1979) function effectively under the new governance arrangements established by the Norfolk Island Amendment Act 2015. It does this by establishing general interpretive rules that will apply to the majority of Norfolk Island enactments, and making specific amendments to other Norfolk Island laws where the application of the general rules was not appropriate. The ‘general rules’ approach was designed to avoid the need to individually amend each Norfolk Island enactment, where generally applicable rules could provide for an effective outcome for administering the continuing laws.
