Definition: Amendment Regulation


An Amendment Regulation is drafted by Parliamentary Counsel's Office for a Government Department or agency for the purpose of amending an existing Regulation. It must be published in the Western Australian Government Gazette to become law. It may become operative on the publishing date or on a specified date.
Subsidiary Legislation is also tabled in Parliament for consideration by a committee. If Parliament dissallows the Amendment Regulation a notice is published in the Government Gazette and the Amendment Regulation ceases to be in force.

After the principal Regulation has passed through the reprint process or if the Amendment Regulation is disallowed by Parliament, copies of the Amendment Regulation are not available separately. The only access to the amendment then is via the original gazette.

Amendment Regulations can be purchased from State Law Publisher until they are incorporated into a reprint.
