                     (c)  both applications are pending immediately before 1 July 2020;

item 13 of Schedule 2 to the transitional Act is taken to apply to the certificate application.

7  Period within which decision must be made on application for assessment certificate

the period beginning on the day of that request and ending on the day the further information is received is excluded in determining the period of 80 days referred to in subsection (1).

8  Matters Executive Director must have regard to in considering application

                   Paragraph 32(3)(f) of the new law applies in relation to the application as if the reference to submissions made in accordance with section 36 of the new law were instead a reference to submissions made in accordance with section 11 of this instrument.

9  Requests for further information under old law

                     (b)  give each applicant the assessment report as varied.
