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

Subsection 2-4(1) (table item 1, column 2, subparagraph (d)(ii))

Kind of editorial change

Change to punctuation

Details of editorial change

Schedule 1 item 27 of the Export Control (Fees and Payments) Amendment Rules 2021 instructs to repeal and substitute the cell at table item 1 in column 2 of subsection 2-4(1).

Subparagraph (d)(ii) of table item 1 in column 2 of subsection 2-4(1) ends in a semicolon despite being the last subparagraph of that table item.

This compilation was editorially changed to omit the semicolon at the end of the subparagraph to bring it into line with legislative drafting practice.
