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

4  Definitions

                   In this instrument:

Legislation Act means the Legislation Act 2003.

Regulations means the Superannuation Industry (Supervision) (Transitional Provisions) Regulations 1993.

SIS Act means the Superannuation Industry (Supervision) Act 1993.

5  Statement of reasons for issue of certificate

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

Statement of reasons

                   I am satisfied that the Regulations would, apart from the operation of Part 4 of Chapter 3 of the Legislation Act, be likely to cease to be in force within 12 months after the sunsetting day for the Regulations.

                   The Regulations are made under the SIS Act which provides for the prudent management of certain superannuation funds, approved deposit funds and pooled superannuation trusts, and for their supervision by the Australian Prudential Regulation Authority, the Australian Securities and Investments Commission and the Commissioner of Taxation. The Regulations deal with various transitional matters related to those funds.

                   The Treasurer has advised that it is likely that the Government will introduce minor technical amendments to the SIS Act within the next 12 months which will result in the Regulations needing to be repealed and remade. Even if these amendments were to pass before 1 October 2018, there would not be sufficient time for the making of replacement regulations before 1 October 2018.

                   The Regulations are likely to cease to be in force within 12 months of their sunsetting date due to the proposed amendments to the SIS Act.

                   A deferral of the sunsetting date for the Regulations will avoid the need to remake them in their current form for the short period before they cease to be in force.

6  Deferral of sunsetting of the Regulations

                   The Regulations, for which the sunsetting day is 1 October 2018, are taken to cease to be in force under section 51 of the Legislation Act on 1 October 2019.

7  Repeal of this instrument

                   This instrument is repealed at the start of 2 October 2019.
