PROCLAMATION

 

 

                   I, WILLIAM GEORGE HAYDEN, Governor‑General of the Commonwealth of Australia, acting with the advice of the Federal Executive Council and under section 10B of the Seas and Submerged Lands Act 1973 and section 4 of the Acts Interpretation Act 1901, declare that, commencing on 1 August 1994:

                     (a)  subject to paragraph (b), the outer limits of Australia’s exclusive economic zone comprise:

                              (i)  the lines that are 200 international nautical miles seaward of the baselines determined by Proclamation under section 7 of the Seas and Submerged Lands Act 1973 for areas of Australia other than its external Territories; and

                             (ii)  in relation to the external Territories, the lines that are 200 international nautical miles seaward of the baselines established under international law; and

                     (b)  where any part of a line specified in the Schedule is less than 200 international nautical miles seaward of the relevant baselines referred to in paragraph (a), that part of the line so specified forms part of the outer limits of that zone; and

                     (c)  for the purposes of items 1, 4 (other than paragraph (a)) and 7 in the Schedule:

                              (i)  all geographic coordinates are expressed in terms of the World Geodetic System 1972 (“WGS 72”); and

                             (ii)  determination of the position on the surface of the Earth of a point or line is to be by reference to WGS 72, that is, by reference to a spheroid having its centre at the centre of the Earth and a major (equatorial) radius of 6,378,135 metres and a flattening of 100/29826; and

                     (d)  for the purposes of paragraphs 2(a) to (z) and (zfa) to (zzf), item 3, and paragraph 4(a), in the Schedule:

                              (i)  all geographic coordinates are expressed in terms of the Australian Geodetic Datum 1966 (“AGD66”); and

                             (ii)  determination of the position on the surface of the Earth of a point or line is to be by reference to AGD66, that is, by reference:

                                        (A)  to a spheroid having its centre at the centre of the Earth and a major (equatorial) radius of 6,378,160 metres and a flattening of 100/29825; and

                                        (B)  to the Johnston Geodetic Station in the Northern Territory which station is taken to be situated at Latitude 25°56´54.5515˝S and Longitude 133°12´30.0771˝E and to have a ground level of 571.2 metres above the spheroid; and

                   (da)  for the purposes of paragraphs 2(za) to (zf) in the Schedule:

                              (i)  all coordinates are determined by reference to the World Geodetic System 1984; and

                             (ii)  the World Geodetic System 1984 is taken to be equivalent to the Geodetic Datum of Australia 1994; and

                     (e)  for the purposes of items 5, 6 and 8 in the Schedule, all geographic coordinates are expressed in terms of the International Terrestrial Reference Frame 2000, as defined by the International Earth Rotation Service at epoch 1 January 2000.

Editorial changes

The Legislation Act 2003 authorises First Parliamentary Counsel to make editorial and presentational changes to a compiled law in preparing a compilation of the law for registration. The changes must not change the effect of the law. Editorial changes take effect from the compilation registration date.

If the compilation includes editorial changes, the endnotes include a brief outline of the changes in general terms. Full details of any changes can be obtained from the Office of Parliamentary Counsel.

Misdescribed amendments

A misdescribed amendment is an amendment that does not accurately describe the amendment to be made. If, despite the misdescription, the amendment can be given effect as intended, the amendment is incorporated into the compiled law and the abbreviation “(md)” added to the details of the amendment included in the amendment history.

If a misdescribed amendment cannot be given effect as intended, the abbreviation “(md not incorp)” is added to the details of the amendment included in the amendment history.

Endnote 5—Editorial changes

In preparing this compilation for registration, the following kinds of editorial change(s) were made under the Legislation Act 2003.

 

Sub‑subparagraph (d)(ii)(B) and the Schedule

 

Kind of editorial change

 

Changes to the way of referring to or expressing a measurement

 

Details of editorial change

 

Sub‑subparagraph (d)(ii)(B) and the Schedule contain multiple references to latitude and longitude.

 

This compilation was editorially changed to omit all references to “South”, “south”, “East” and “east” contained in the expression of latitude and longitude and substitute “S” and “E” respectively to bring these references into line with legislative drafting practice.

 

This compilation was also editorially changed to update the expression of whole degrees of latitude to 2 numerals and whole degrees of longitude to 3 numerals by inserting “0” at the beginning of each sequence of numbers, as required.

 

This compilation was also editorially changed to set solid these occurrences of latitude and longitude by omitting the space after the degree symbol and the space after the prime symbol.
