The day after this instrument is registered.

24 March 2017

Note:          This table relates only to the provisions of this instrument as originally made. It will not be amended to deal with any later amendments of this instrument.

             (2)  Any information in column 3 of the table is not part of this instrument. Information may be inserted in this column, or information in it may be edited, in any published version of this instrument.

3  Authority

                   This instrument is made under paragraph 51(1)(c) of the Legislation Act 2003.

4  Definitions

                   In this instrument:

Act means the Legislation Act 2003.

5  Statement of reasons for issue of certificate

                   For the purposes of paragraph 51(2)(a) of the Act, this section sets out the statement of the reasons for the issue of this certificate.

Statement of reasons

                   I am satisfied that:

                     (a)  the Copyright Regulations 1969 (the Copyright Regulations); and

                     (b)  the Copyright Tribunal (Procedure) Regulations 1969 (the Procedure Regulations);

would, apart from the operation of Part 4 of Chapter 3 of the Act, be likely to cease to be in force within 12 months after the sunsetting day for each of those Regulations.

                   Both the Copyright Regulations and the Procedure Regulations need to be in force for the Copyright Act 1968 to operate as intended.

                   New regulations are currently being drafted to support amendments to the Copyright Act 1968 which the Commonwealth Government expects to introduce into Parliament in 2017. The new regulations will repeal and replace the Copyright Regulations and the Procedure Regulations, and are expected to commence once the amendments to the Copyright Act 1968 (if passed by Parliament) commence.

                   The Copyright Regulations and the Procedure Regulations are due to sunset on 1 April 2017. A 12 month deferral of the sunsetting day will avoid the need to remake each of those Regulations in their current form for the short period before they are expected to be repealed.

6  Deferral of sunsetting of the Copyright Regulations 1969 and the Copyright Tribunal (Procedure) Regulations 1969

                   The Copyright Regulations 1969 and the Copyright Tribunal (Procedure) Regulations 1969, for which the sunsetting day is 1 April 2017, are taken to cease to be in force under section 51 of the Act on 1 April 2018.

7  Repeal of this instrument

                   This instrument is repealed at the start of 2 April 2018.
