Regulations as amended, taking into account amendments up to Migration Legislation Amendment (2017 Measures No. 3) Regulations 2017
This regulation repeals and remakes the Australian Citizenship Regulations 2007 (the former Regulations). The Legislation Act 2003 (LA) provides that all legislative instruments, other than exempt instruments, progressively ‘sunset’ according to the timetable set out in the LA. Subsection 50(1) of the LA repeals a legislative instrument on the first 1 April or 1 October falling on or after the tenth anniversary of the registration of the instrument. The former Regulations were registered on 25 June 2007 and commenced on 1 July 2007. The former Regulations are due to sunset on 1 October 2017. When a legislative instrument sunsets, it is automatically repealed under section 50 of the LA.
