Commencement: determining when subsidiary legislation commences?


As a general rule, subsidiary legislation comes into force on the day it is published in the WA Government Gazette unless otherwise stated, in which case the commencement information can usually be found at the beginning of the subsidiary legislation.

You can access the electronic copy via our web site under "Subsidiary Legislation" or hard copies can be purchased from us.

Clients can access commencement information for the Regulations or the amendments from our web site by selecting "Legislative Information" then "subsidiary legislation".
