The Federal Court Legislation Amendment (Criminal Proceedings) Rules 2016, which came into force on 10 November 2016, made technical changes to Federal Court legislation which were consequential to the enactment of the Federal Court (Criminal Proceedings) Rules 2016.

 

The background to the Federal Court Legislation Amendment (Criminal Proceedings) Rules 2016 and the Federal Court (Criminal Proceedings) Rules 2016 is set out in the respective Explanatory Statements for those Rules.

The purpose of this Supplementary Explanatory Statement is to set out details of consultation undertaken in developing the Federal Court Legislation Amendment (Criminal Proceedings) Rules 2016.
